FoodBioSystems offers a wider range of excellent and innovative training in skills that equip researchers across the agri-food-nutrition chain. Our doctoral researchers each undertake a 4-year PhD programme with a strong element of structured, yet flexible, training throughout. There are 3 layers of the training journey – individual training, cohort level training and external training; tailored to individual needs and career goals. Cohort training covers four key fields: Food Systems, Big Data (data analytics and modelling), Business, and Research Fundamentals. Each of our doctoral researchers is co-supervised across two universities within our DTP consortium, enabling students the best access to state-of-the-art facilities and providing the very best individual technical and subject specific training.
