Biotechnology & Biological Sciences

The new Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) programme operated by the Universities of Strathclyde and Glasgow aims to provide highly skilled scientists for academia, policy and industry and support the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) mission to further scientific knowledge for economic growth, wealth and job creation – improving the quality of life in the UK and beyond. 

At Strathclyde the programme, which is supported by the BBSRC as part of a £67 million investment in postgraduate training across the UK, focusses on research expertise present in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS).   

The DTP is a new 4 year PhD programme which allows students to undertake rotational research projects with prospective supervisors in their first year of study prior to embarking on their PhD studies within one of these laboratories.  This allows students to gain expertise and knowledge in a variety of related research areas thus enabling them to make an informed choice for the PhD project.   As part of the programme, students will also undertake a 3-month professional internship to gain direct experience of the areas of work into which they can apply their skills.

We encourage applications from students who have or hope to obtain an Upper second class degree or equivalent in a relevant discipline, be a UK citizen or an EU student who meets the UK residency requirements and have interest in working in one of the relevant research areas (click here for further details).
