How to apply
Applications are now closed but we would expect the process for recruitment for September 2020 starters to begin in the autumn of 2019. Please check online as studentships as part of the NLD BBSRC DTP are advertised locally by the institutions and on FindAPhD. If you are interested in a particular area you would be encouraged to approach a supervisor from Newcastle, Liverpool or Durham directly to discuss a project and options going forward.
The scheme looks to recruit the very strongest candidates for specific projects in the field of bioscience. In return students will have a cross institutional supervisory team, support via a full suite of training and cohort events, opportunities to network across institutions, the cohort and use existing networks with a whole range of external experts. Each studentship is fully funded with a stipend* and access to generous training grants only available to NLD BBSRC DTP students.
*Based on meeting BBSRC funding requirements.
