BBSRC: Studentship call launch
The BRIC Doctoral Training Programme aims to improve the supply of skills to industry and academia in the bioprocessing sector, by providing a PhD programme that includes structured training that exposes students to industrial practices and needs.
At the heart of the BRIC Doctoral Programme is a research training project which will provide the student with the opportunity to make a novel contribution to research in bioprocessing, an area of cutting-edge innovation, and the opportunity to gain exposure to the challenges facing industrial companies in this sector.
The first call for studentships opened in 2010 and resulted in eight studentships being awarded. A second call opened in 2011 and resulted in 10 studentships being awarded.
***This is the third call for BRIC studentships opened on 1st August 2012 and will close on 11th October 2012. In this call a maximum of ten studentships will be awarded.***
