Our long-running flagship Rotation PhD programme at the John Innes Centre and The Sainsbury Laboratory supports the most promising independently minded students to undertake in-depth postgraduate research training. The programme involves the John Innes Centre and The Sainsbury Laboratory, which are internationally respected research institutions in Norwich, UK. The programme is designed to attract outstanding applicants with excellent academic records who show potential for research at the highest level. Special features of the programme include empowerment to choose three research topics and supervisors for research rotations in the first year.

During your first year, you will undertake three 10-week research projects with different supervisors located in either of the two research institutes. You will learn from your fellow rotation students in this multidisciplinary programme through regular journal clubs alongside research presentations at the end of each rotation.

The programme is renowned for its academic excellence and ground-breaking research. The empowerment of the student on the rotation programme instils independence of thought right from the start.

You will be mentored by the programme tutor, a senior academic and a rotation student from the previous year-group. You will rapidly become familiar with a wide range of scientific approaches including genetics, genomics, cell biology and physiology through to microbiology, molecular biology, crop science, biological chemistry, applied mathematics, computational biology and systems biology. The objective of the first eight months is for you to gain broad technical and theoretical training prior to the selection of your main research project and supervisor, who will lead you to the submission of the highest quality PhD thesis within a total of four years. You will be registered for your degree at the University of East Anglia.
