Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership

PhD in Life Sciences

This BBSRC-funded partnership brings together three West Midlands based universities, all of which have been highly ranked by the Complete University Guide 2015; Warwick (7th), Birmingham (17th) and Leicester (19th).

• The partnership hosts excellent facilities providing state-of-the-art technology, for example the MRC Metabolomics Centre, Phytobiology facilities and imaging, as well as new centres in Synthetic Biology, Industrial Biotechnology, and Neuroscience.

• At least 80% of our research projects are interdisciplinary and represent innovative ways of working. You will be free to traverse traditional boundaries to expand your expertise and create new ways of thinking.

• Continuing professional development is built into the programme. You will gain a range of transferable skills to complement your research and will undertake an external placement. This can be within organisations in sectors ranging from policy-making and the media to Intellectual Property management and industrial marketing.

Initial enquiries can be made by contacting supervisors directly. For further information please email mibtp@warwick.ac.uk
