Advances in the biosciences offer genuine opportunities to focus on world-wide challenges such as food security, new sources of energy and the development of sustainable sources for chemical products.

Our training programme is fashioned to the individual needs of the student to ensure that they are equipped with the skills and experience they need to take them through their PhD journey and beyond into academic and other career opportunities. Students on the programme will spend six months in the labs on three mini-projects to give a wide variety of experience and skills before starting work on their PhD project. 

Our 4-year fully funded PhD programme offers projects aligned with the BBSRC strategic priorities in Agriculture and Food Security, Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy and world-class Bioscience ( Molecules, Cells and Organisms).
