MIBTP is a BBSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership between the universities of Aston, Birmingham, Harper Adams, Leicester and Warwick.

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 focused in vital research areas such as Sustainable Agriculture and Food, Understanding the Rules of Life, Renewable Resources and Clean Growth and Integrated Understanding of Health 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).

Studentships include: fees (cost of UK fee rate), a tax free annual stipend, a travel allowance in year 1, a travel / conference budget, a generous consumables budget and use of a MacBook Pro for the duration of the programme.

MIBTP is jointly funded by the BBSRC and the universities of Aston, Birmingham, Harper Adams, Leicester and Warwick.
