Course summary

Overview

The London Interdisciplinary Biosciences Consortium is one of the largest BBSRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnerships in the UK. Representing an exciting collaboration between six of London's world-class universities and specialist institutions, the consortium provides students with a unique opportunity to pursue innovative interdisciplinary research projects in the heart of one of the world's most vibrant cities. More information about the consortium and its research strengths can be found on our website: www.lido-dtp.ac.uk.

Careers

Recent doctoral graduates from the UCL Division of Biosciences have become researchers at leading UK universities and research centres including UCL, Cambridge, Oxford, King's College London, University of Manchester, the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK; or highly reputable international academic institutions such as Cornell University, Yale, Howard Hughes Medical Institute and University of the Western Cape. Others have begun their careers by joining the civil service and National Health Service or they have found senior roles in industry with companies such as Novartis, Cellzoe and Genzyme.

Employability

The DTP structure delivers high-quality student training and produces postdoctoral professionals who are comfortable contributing to the expanding range of complex interdisciplinary bioscience research projects in the public and private sectors. Furthermore, graduates will be able to exploit their experience of mastering the complexities of cross-disciplinary bioscience research in other fields where large and complex projects and teams must be managed with competence. Regular employability seminars allow students to hear from peers, alumni and guest speakers from a range of backgrounds and organisations.
