BBSRC CTP four-year studentships for October 2018
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR. The Collaborative Training Partnership for Fruit Crop Research (www.ctp-fcr.org) focuses on research and development on important fruit crops in the UK. There are six four-year PhD studentships available to start from October 2018. These topics are:
Realising increased photosynthetic efficiency to increase strawberry yields
Making genotyping cheaper and easier
Understand soil resilience to improve tree health
Although the usual ‘BBSRC residence eligibility criteria” apply to the three studentships (http://www.rcuk.ac.uk/documents/news/terms-and-conditions-of-research-council-training-grants/), we will consider applicants from other jurisdictions under exceptional circumstances. Anyone interested should send your application (CV, cover letter, personal statement and two names for reference) to firstname.lastname@example.org, citing the project reference. Application deadline is 13 April 2018.
