The London Interdisciplinary Biosciences Consortium is one of the largest BBSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnerships in the UK. Representing an exciting collaboration between six of London's world-class universities and specialist institutions, the consortium provides students with a unique opportunity to pursue innovative interdisciplinary research projects in the heart of one of the world's most vibrant cities.

In order to harness the scientific excellence and vast research expertise within the reach of the partnership we ensure that our project portfolio is very diverse. All rotation and PhD projects are interdisciplinary, with two active collaborating supervisors from clearly distinguished disciplines, many spanning two different institutions.
This 4-year programme is aimed at graduates with a strong interest in multi-disciplinary research. We invite applications from highly motivated students from a wide range of academic backgrounds including biological, biomedical, veterinary, physical, computational, engineering or mathematical disciplines.
We welcome applications from interested candidates at any point of the year, however only applications that are complete, including references, by 5pm on the 20th January will be considered for entry in the following September.
