Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership


We are no longer recruiting for 2019-20 entry onto the MIBTP programme.

The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) is a BBSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership between the University of Warwick, the University of Birmingham and the University of Leicester.

The MIBTP has an ambitious vision to deliver innovative, world class research across the Life Sciences to boost the growing Bioeconomy in the Midlands and across the UK.

PhD Studentship projects are focussed in vital research areas such as food security, bio-energy and industrial biotechnology, and use interdisciplinary and quantitative approaches to biology.
 
Students from a wide diversity of academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply: those with creative drive in both theoretical disciplines (for example, maths, computer science, statistics) as well as experimental science (for example, biology, biomedicine, chemistry, biotechnology).
