SWBio DTP project call information

** Project call for studentships starting in Sept 2024 is now closed **

IMPORTANT: This last project call was for our last cohort of students for DTP3.  Future studentships are dependent on the success of our DTP4 renewal which we hope to hear the outcome of in Sept/Oct 2024.  Of note, it is likely that a project call will still take place in June/July 2024 (deadline Sept 2024) in anticipation of the outcome.

Please submit your online project pro-forma by the advertised project call deadline.

There are 3 separate pools of studentships to which you can apply for studentships.  Supervisors can be listed as the main/Rothamsted/lead supervisor only once within each of these pools:

  • Standard studentships
  • Standard studentships with associate partners
  • CASE studentships

Please take the time to read the below very useful documents before starting your project pro-forma.
