<p><strong>School of Bisciences - Doctoral Training Partnership in Bioscience</strong></p> <p>BBSRC Studentships in Biorenewables and Bioenergy<br /> The University of Nottingham, in partnership with Rothamsted Research (RRes), has a world class reputation in Bioenergy and Biorenewables. The University has been awarded a BBSRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) which includes a number of PhD Studentships to work on biocatalytic systems for manufacturing biofuels, platform chemicals, pharmaceutical intermediates and biotherapeutics. Students receive a general training in the first six months, including a series of 3 mini-projects which provide experience of working in different research areas. At the end of the first six months, you will choose from a selection of interdisciplinary projects in Bioenergy and Biorenewables. The projects will focus on the science and engineering of the microbial and enzymatic processes (including the interface with process chemistry) and with a strong emphasis on systems biology, systems chemistry and systems engineering. Many of the projects include collaborative links with industry. Details of project areas are available at: Biorenewables and Bioprocessing Research Group; Bioenergy ; ClosTron.com - Clostridia Research Group (CRG). <br /> Applications are invited from students with backgrounds in Biochemistry, Microbiology, Chemistry, Biochemical Engineering, or related disciplines who have or expect to graduate with a first or upper second, MSc or equivalent. <br /> Funding is available for four years from Autumn 2012. This studentship includes a three-month full-time placement outside of the research environment. <br /> Further information regarding the DTP is available at: <a href="http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/graduateschool/BiosciencesDTP">www.nottingham.ac.uk/graduateschool/BiosciencesDTP</a></p> <p>Eligibility for full funding is restricted to UK (fees and stipend). EU students are eligible for fees only awards, unless the applicants fulfil the residency criteria for a full award. </p> <p>Applicants should go to <a href="http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/graduateschool/doctoral-training-centres/bbsrc-doctoral-training-programme-in-biosciences/index.aspx">http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/graduateschool/doctoral-training-centres/bbsrc-doctoral-training-programme-in-biosciences/index.aspx</a> to download the application and reference forms.
