The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in BioDesign Engineering
aims to train the next generation of leaders at the interface of
biology, engineering, physical and data sciences. The CDT will have
an integrative training programme that covers experimentation,
automation, coding, data science and entrepreneurship applied to
the design, realisation and optimisation of novel biological
systems for diverse applications.
The CDT is being led by Imperial College London with the University
of Manchester and University College London as partners. All
students will undertake the MRes in Systems and Synthetic Biology
at Imperial College in their first year, with an extended project
at the lead-supervisor institution, followed by a 3 year PhD
registration in that host institution.
Our aim is to build an inclusive cohort of students with diverse
skillsets from life sciences, engineering and
physical/computational backgrounds. We therefore encourage
applications from students that reflect this diversity.
