The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience DTP is an inclusive and innovative four-year graduate training programme, funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (UKRI-BBSRC). It aims to equip a new generation of researchers with the skills, insight and knowledge needed to tackle the most important challenges in bioscience research.
The programme is led by the University of Oxford, in partnership with eight world-class research organisations: The Pirbright Institute, Oxford Brookes University, Diamond Light Source, ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, STFC Central Laser Facility, The Rosalind Franklin Institute, the Research Complex at Harwell and the Novo Nordisk Research Centre Oxford (NNRCO).
The course admits students who wish to conduct fundamental and applied bioscience research. Students from a diverse range of backgrounds are encouraged to apply including students with degrees in the Life Sciences, Physical Sciences and Computational and Mathematical Sciences.
Research areas include: Integrative Plant and Animal Biology, Mechanistic Molecular and Cellular Bioscience, Transformative Technologies, Bioscience for Health, Animal Health and Welfare, Crop Science, Industrial Biotechnology and Pharmaceuticals.
We aim to deliver training that will enable a new generation of researchers to drive forward the frontiers of bioscience, and to translate this research into high-impact applications.
We aspire to be a world-leading partnership that inspires, enables and supports both staff and students to achieve their full potential in order to enrich scientific knowledge, tackle global and industrial challenges, and benefit the wider community. We are distinctive for our world-class research and facilities and our collaborative, interdisciplinary training approach.
We aim to create a community that is innovative, inclusive and collaborative, in which everyone feels valued, respected, and supported.
We are still recruiting for iCASE studentships in partnership with the Novo Nordisk Research Centre Oxford
