White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership in Mechanistic Biology

This Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) brings together the research of the world-class  molecular and cellular bioscience centres at the White Rose universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York.  The collaboration has attracted a £5.7 million investment from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) together with additional investment from the partner universities. At York 4-year PhD studentships are available in Mechanistic Biology and Biological Chemistry.  The DTP address the three BBSRC's strategic core themes:

  1. Food Security
  2. Bioenergy and Industrial Biotechnology
  3. World Class Bioscience

The aim is to enable students to develop a range of research skills and in particular equip them with core mathematical, data analysis and generic professional skills that are necessary for bioscience research in the coming decades. The next round of studentships available in Biological Chemistry at York will be advertised soon. Applications will be open from 1st October 2013 until 10 January 2014.

An Open Day will take place on Thursday 7 November.  For more details and to book your place, see: http://www.york.ac.uk/biology/postgraduate/dtpbbsrc/
