The Institute of Chemical Biology (ICB) has been awarded an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in physical sciences innovation in Chemical Biology for bio-industry and healthcare.  
The ICB invites proposals for 4 year PhD studentships for studentships starting October 2017

Top Up Call

The top-up PhD funding scheme is for supervisors who are able to provide a financial contribution towards a 4 year PhD programme starting in October 2017.

To be eligible for the top-up scheme supervisors need to provide 50% financial contribution to the studentship (approx. £52k).

The scheme is funding projects that are concerned with the development of new molecular tools and technologies to study specific interactions that address key challenges in the pharma, biotech, personal care or agriscience sectors.
