We are very excited to announce fully funded PhD opportunities with the Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership: Click here to view current opportunities.

The Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham BBSRC DTP, is a strategic Partnership in Biosciences doctoral training between three research-intensive universities in northern cities of great industrial heritage, Newcastle University, the University of Liverpool and Durham University.

The Partnership is offering up to 28 four-year BBSRC-funded studentships starting in October 2020. A wide range of projects across the Partnership are available for application under the broad themes of:

• Agriculture & Food Security;
• Systems Biology and Technology Development;
• Industrial Biotechnology, Synthetic Biology and Structural Biology;
• Regenerative Biology, Stem Cells and Neuroscience;
• Ageing Diet and Health.


These PhD opportunities are funded by the BBSRC, therefore only UK/EU students are eligible.

Candidates who have, or are expecting to attain, at least an upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject, are invited to apply by submitting a full CV and covering letter, plus an Additional Details Form which can be found here, to bbsrcdtp@liverpool.ac.uk by 17 January 2020. We encourage students to search all available projects, and make a single application listing at least one, and up to three, preferred projects in total.

Informal enquires may be made by email to the relevant supervisor.

The multidisciplinary training experience and interdisciplinary nature of some of the projects means that we welcome applications from students with physical science and mathematical backgrounds who are interested in using their skills to address the challenges of 21st century bioscience research.

Deadline to apply: 17th January 2020
PhD starts 1st Oct 2020

Good luck.
