DTP Studentships

We offer a 4-year programme of integrated research and skills training, with cross-disciplinary supervision and opportunities for professional internships with external partners.

Our vision is to train researchers of the future equipped to address and solve fundamental and strategic biological questions of national and global importance in the following areas:

• Food Security
• Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy
• World Class Bioscience

The programme builds on the excellent track records of the Universities of Leeds (The Faculties of Biological Sciences and Maths and Physical Science), Sheffield (Faculty of Science) and York (Departments of Biology and Chemistry) as leading centres of research and training in molecular and cellular biosciences.

For successful applicants, the studentships would provide funding for tuition fees and living stipend at the current Research Council UK rates (subject to eligibility).
