Applications are now open for the Institute of Integrative Biology International Scholarships.
The scholarships cover tuition fees and research costs for PhD study. If successful, you will also receive a one-off sum of £1,000 when you begin your studies. Students must already have secured funding for their living costs for the duration of their studies.
The scholarships are available for projects within the Institute’s four flagship research themes:
Theme: Adaptation to Environmental Change
- Food Resilience by Aquaponics.
- When does genetic diversity matter? The conservation of genetic biodiversity in a changing world.
- The role of the environment in affecting the rates of horizontal gene transfer.
Theme: Dynamics and Management of Host-Microbe Interactions
- Understanding the role of the accessory genome in the African epidemic of non-typhoidal Salmonella disease.
- Advanced bioinformatics methods to better understand protein function.
Theme: Molecular Basis of Therapeutic Targeting
- How do muscle stem cells maintain and regenerate muscles?
- Analysis of heparin binding proteins and the supramolecular structure of extracellular matrix.
Theme: From Genomes to Biological Systems
- Exploiting advanced methods for protein structure prediction.
- Modularity and Synthetic Engineering of carbon-fixing organelles.
- Bioinformatic analysis of the liver fluke Fasciola hepatica.
Applications are open to international students who plan to begin their PhD at the University in October 2017 with the Institute.
