The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) is a BBSRC funded doctoral training partnership between University of Warwick, University of Birmingham and University of Leicester. The MIBTP has an ambitious vision to deliver innovative, world class research across the Life Sciences to boost the growing Bioeconomy in the Midlands and across the UK.

Studentship projects will be focussed in vital research areas such as food security, bio-energy and quantitative biology. Students will be based in one of the departments/centres carrying out relevant research including the School of Life Sciences, Department of Chemistry, Warwick Medical School and Warwick Systems Biology. Students from a wide diversity of academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Projects are available for those with creative drive in both theoretical (IT and mathematical) and experimental (biology, biomedicine, chemistry, biotechnology) research.

Training in year 1will be based on face to face tuition from experts in both dry and wet experimentation. Formal transferable professional skills training is included to produce research-skilled, rounded graduates primed to make an impact in their careers.
