The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership
The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) programme is a 4 year DPhil*/PhD that will provide you with the skills needed to tackle important challenges in bioscience research.
This innovative, individually-tailored programme includes taught courses in interdisciplinary skills and the opportunity in Year 1 to undertake two exploratory research projects with prospective supervisors, before choosing the 3 year research project. You'll undertake a 12 week professional internship to gain experience in areas of work that you can apply your skills to.
We are offering two places on the BBSRC funded DTP in the areas of plant cell biology, mammalian cell biology, molecular biology, parasitology and bioimaging. Successful candidates will enjoy access to state of the art facilities including newly refurbished laboratories and bioimaging suite.
Many projects can be taken as a 3-month rotation or full PhD project. Students with an Oxford Brookes supervisor may undertake projects at any of the partner organisations. Listed rotation projects are examples only.
In addition to your choice of PhD project at Oxford Brookes University, you will be able to undertake your exploratory research projects at any of the seven world-class research institutions that make up the DTP:
- University of Oxford, coordinators of the DTP
- Oxford Brookes University, a partner in developing regional excellence in bioscience research
- Pirbright Institute, the UK’s national centre of research into viral diseases of livestock and viruses that spread from animals to humans
- Diamond Light Source, the UK’s national synchrotron science facility
- ISIS, which provides national capabilities for neutron science
- STFC Central Laser Facility, which provides laser technology for experiments in physics, chemistry and biology
- The Research Complex at Harwell (RCaH), specialising in research using Diamond, ISIS and the Central Laser Facility at Harwell
- The Rosalind Franklin Institute, a new national institute dedicated to bringing about transformative changes in life science.
The programme is supported by the (BBSRC) with additional support from within the Partnership.
