IBioIC Collaborative Training Partnership PhD Studentships

IBioIC Collaborative Training Partnership PhD Studentships, we are delighted to inform the general republic that suitable Applications are invited for IBioIC Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) PhD Programme – Call for Projects #6. IBioIC will only award a PhD studentship for projects of 4 years in duration.

Since its inception, IBioIC has developed, funded and administrated an innovative, collaborative PhD programme funded by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC).  As a result of a further award from BBSRC in January 2017, IBioIC has expanded its PhD programme to form a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) which funds four-year studentships leading to the degree of PhD.  The end goal of the IBioIC CTP is to provide students with all the skills required to significantly contribute to the growth of the biotechnology industry in line with the UK Industrial Strategy. In addition, the IBioIC CTP aims to foster life-long networks within the biotechnology industry through regular cross-cohort training and interactions.
