The Norwich Research Park Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (NRPDTP) is a PhD programme involving the John Innes Centre, Earlham Institute, Quadram Institute Bioscience, The Sainsbury Laboratory and University of East Anglia.
It is a particularly exciting time to set out on a career in biosciences research. The global challenges of the 21st century are enormous, and advances in the biosciences offer real opportunities to address topics such as sustainable agriculture and food, renewable resources and clean growth and an improvement of human and animal health across the life course.
The NRPDTP is unique in bringing together the resources of five world-class research institutions on a single site – the Norwich Research Park. Consequently, doctoral candidates joining our DTP 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.
The NRPDTP programme builds on an established history of working in partnership, offering students the opportunity to become part of a vibrant multinational research community within which they can learn from internationally-recognised scientists and contribute to new and exciting discoveries.
