The next deadline for application to October 2013 PhD and EngD programmes is 30th November 2012
The department offers a range of research degree opportunities; many supported by BBSRC awards, and by industrial sponsors. Typically eight to ten new PhD positions are offered each year. The projects draw upon the expertise within the department and the multidisciplinary research linkages of the Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering. Many of the PhD projects are collaborative with leading bioindustry companies. These external links, and close involvement with the Centre’s research team, provide the foundation for producing much sought after doctoral graduates.
Candidates are invited to contact the Department of Biochemical Engineering about all of our available Mphil/PhD programmes using the “How to Reply” and “Request more information” links on the left. Meanwhile, some of our projects and other details are offered via the BBSRC London Interdisciplinary Biosciences PhD Consortium website.
The department has been selected as the recipient of an annual EPSRC-supported allocation of ten Bioprocess Leadership Engineering Doctorates. Each EngD programme is of four calendar years’ duration; with up to half of the time spent with the host company which also sponsors the researcher. This gives the researchers unprecedented opportunities to explore novel science and engineering in a process and business context relevant to future leadership roles in the bioindustry. Given the levels of company sponsorship negotiated by the department the stipends received by the EngD researchers are, in many cases, equivalent to graduate starting salaries in industry.
Applications for 4 newly funded EngD's can be made here: http://www.npl.co.uk/careers/current-vacancies/doctoral-studentships-biochemical-engineering Deadline 20th December 2012
