Faculty of Science's research community Faculty of Science's research community

In the Faculty of Science, there is a large and vibrant group of over 400 research students, who form a vital part of our research community. Students are based in a School, but many research projects involve collaboration with internal or external groups and professional training and some research facilities are run at Faculty level, so boundaries between schools are very porous.  About 130 further research students are based at the adjacent BBSRC research institutes, The John Innes Centre; The Institute for Food Research and The Genome Analysis Centre and together we run the BBSRC Norwich Research Park Doctoral Training Partnership which recruits about 40 PhD students in biosciences each year, many of them working on collaborative projects between two or more partners.  We also lead the NERC EnvEast Doctoral Training Partnership which includes ten external research centres and two other universities.
