Future studentships will be advertised here: http://www.ifr.ac.uk/students/search/current_opps.asp
The Institute of Food Research currently has a number of 4 year funded PhD studentships open for application, to start in October 2014. These studentships are part of the Norwich Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) programme, involving five world class institutes based on the Norwich Research Park. The programme offers biosciences students the chance to work in a multidisciplinary research environment and to join a vibrant student community.
The closing date for applications is November 29th.
The studentships at IFR are:
- Deciphering how dietary polysaccharides improve our immune health
- Folic acid, epigenetics and health
- Role of General Stress Response in Escherichia coli gut colonisation
- How do bacteria produce polysaccharide coat for survival and colonisation in the gastrointestinal tract?
- Understanding the digestion of fats and fat soluble nutrients using NMR
The Norwich Bioscience Doctoral Training Programme is supported by Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) who recognise Norwich as a major centre for biosciences research in the UK. The Norwich DTP is unique in bringing together the resources of five world-class research institutions on a single site – the Norwich Research Park. As a consequence, students joining the Norwich programme will have the opportunity, within a single programme, to pursue multidisciplinary research encompassing everything from atomic level structural studies, through computational and systems biology, to large scale crop field trials.
