Training the food and health scientists of the future is an important part of Quadram Institute Bioscience’s mission. We offer PhD students a stimulating  period of study which prepares them well for a career in academia, industry, government and the research community.

PhD students are hosted in research groups which are headed by world leaders in their ­field, who are supported by postdoctoral scientists and by dedicated technology and analysis platforms such as metabolomics, proteomics and statistics. Students benefit from easy access to the student life at the University of East Anglia (UEA).

Quadram Institute Bioscience is a partner in the Norwich Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership Programme, which brings together the resources of the world-class research institutions on the Norwich Research Park. The institute is also a specialised international training centre for EU PhD students and postdoctoral scientists.
