Dual Award PhD in Synthetic and Systems Biology

The University of Manchester and China's Tsinghua University have come together to offer a unique dual degree PhD programme in Synthetic and Systems Biology, with successful applicants spending four life-changing years across Manchester and Beijing.

The first-of-its-kind dual award PhD programme in Synthetic and Systems Biology brings together two globally-renowned institutions at the forefront of research in this area: the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB) at The University of Manchester, and the Center for Synthetic and Systems Biology (CSSB) at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.

Fees at both institutions are covered as part of the studentship package, and other funding opportunities include an annual stipend at the minimum Research Councils UK rate (around £15,000 for 2019/20) that will be paid to students while in Manchester, and a commensurate stipend while at Tsinghua.
