For supervisors

Four-Year CDT Programme

We usually have a minimum of 10 fully funded studentship places across different schemes on our 4-year programme available every year.

Central Research Theme

The central research theme of the ICB CDT is concerned with the study of a specific molecular interaction in biological systems and the development of novel molecular tools and technologies.

Note that in addition to the previous remit of the study of protein-protein and protein-lipid interactions, other molecular interactions of biomedical and biological importance, such as protein-nucleic acid, lipid-drug, lipid-lipid, lipid-nucleic acid and lipid-metabolite interactions and others, are also within remit.

The “annual scheme” supports projects that are concerned with the development of new molecular tools and technologies to study specific molecular interactions that address key challenges in the pharma, biotech, personal care or agriscience sectors. Both, project proposals concerned with either translational or basic research will be considered but in both instances there must be underpinning innovation in the physical sciences.

Sector Specific Funding Schemes

The ICB CDT will be inviting proposals for 4 year PhD studentships via sector specific calls (Pharma Industry, The Grantham Institute, Procter&Gamble etc). These jointly funded studentships will address sector specific challenges. Each studentship will be part of the ICB CDT and the students will receive the full ICB CDT education and training programme over the four years. These calls will be published later this year.
