Research and development opportunities

PhD by research

The Centre for Novel Agricultural Products (CNAP) is committed to training young researchers in its multidisciplinary environment. Postgraduates studying within CNAP for their PhD programme are supported by a wide range of sponsors. 

As part of the Department of Biology, graduates in CNAP undertake a programme of research, guided by their supervisor and a training panel consisting of an additional two academics with relevant expertise. There is a formal requirement for a range of activities, including taught courses on transferable skills and generic technologies.

All graduates have access to the Departmental Technology Facility, ensuring training in new technologies in biological science.
