White Rose - University of Leeds PhD studentships session
The Universities Leeds, Sheffield and York are partners in the WHITE ROSE DOCTORAL TRAINING PARTNERSHIP in MECHANISTIC BIOLOGY AND ITS STRATEGIC APPLICATION
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.
At Leeds we offer a 4-year programme of integrated research and skills training, with cross-disciplinary supervision and opportunities for professional internships with external partners. The programme will fund studentships in three key BBSRC priority areas, Agriculture and Food Security, Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy, and World Class Bioscience.
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 projects will be interdisciplinary and encompass current research in the departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Engineering, Maths and Physics that falls within the BBSRC remit and the remit of Doctoral Training Programme.
