Something About Company

The FoodBioSystems DTP is funded under the third phase of BBSRC’s Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTP) and brings together a consortium of six university partners. We are in our second year of operation and are currently training 56 doctoral students across the partner universities. The projects span topics across the food chain, from farm to fork, and 24 of the studentships are supported by non-academic partners.

To find out more about the DTP,  please check out what some of our researchers have said about their research and training experiences so far at  Aberystwyth UniversityBrunel UniversityCranfield UniversityQueen’s University Belfast, University of Reading and University of Surrey.

FoodBioSystems is led by the University of Reading in partnership with the other 5 universities , and with associate partners EIT Food, the British Nutrition Foundation, the Science and Technology Facilities Council Food Network+, and Diamond Light Source. Our doctoral researchers have an unparalleled opportunity to work in state-of-the-art laboratories and receive world-leading training, from pre-farm research into the fundamental biology of animals and crops, through integrated research across food production, storage and manufacturing, to post-fork research into fundamental biology of human nutrition, gut microbiome as well as health and well-being.

The FoodBioSystemsDTP is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI), to building a doctoral researcher (DR) and staff body that reflects the diversity of society and to encourage applications from under-represented and disadvantaged groups. Our actions to promote diversity and inclusion within the DTP are outlined on our website.

Each institution in the DTP partnership has at a minimum Athena SWAN Bronze accreditation. University of Surrey are members  of  the  Race  Equality  Charter, University of Reading Aberystwyth are  in  the  top  100  Stonewall employers, while Brunel University is a Stonewall member and Queens University Belfast is a Stonewall Diversity Champion.

Our studentships are offered on a part time basis in addition to full time registration. The minimum registration is 50% FT and the studentship end date will be extended to reflect the part-time registration.
