PhD in Life sciences Scholarships [Complete Directory]
Last Updated on
this blogpost, we compiled PhD scholarships in field of very broad yet very
important topic which is Life sciences. Along with life sciences, Forestry,
food sciences and Agriculture sciences are also listed in same category. PhD in
life sciences scholarships are considered one of most attractive positions due
to large stipends and their importance in field of science. The funding in this
domain is huge as it involves study of Human ecology.
to bottom of page for complete directory of PhD in mechanical engineering
contains PhD scholarships from following domains:
Life sciences (Biomedicine, biochemistry, Biotechnology, nano medicine)
Agriculture and Forestry
involves study of living organisms. For students who are interested in medical science for
life sciences, they should also check directory of PhD
in biology for further info.
in Life sciences
PhD in life sciences is all about research in field of organisms at physiological and molecular level. In life sciences, subjects like immunology, cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, biophysics are normally mainstream. The nano-bio interface in field of biotechnology, bioengineering and nanomedicine are also sub category of life science.
PhD holders in field of Life sciences are
hired as analyst & consultant, Business solution architect, and research
How to do PhD in Life sciences
In Europe and the UK, studentships are offered
in the form of PhD in life sciences jobs where student is recruited as research
fellow or teaching associate for 3 or 4 years. In the USA, you will apply
directly to department and you will be automatically considered for scholarship
or funding position if you have good research experience and GRE score. You can
also contact professor for funding in your department. Follow RTP Australia for information on how to Contact
the Professor for PhD in life sciences. In Canada, you will directly contact
the professor for any funded position and ask for their consent. Contacting the
professor is very important in these proceedings. For these studentships in life
sciences, applicants either apply to the university directly or contact the
professor with PhD in life sciences scholarships as subject line.
Applications submitted for consideration needs
to have the following essential documents:
Letter of recommendations
Statement of Purpose
PhD research proposal
Applications (in certain cases – given on university website)
in agriculture sciences
in agriculture sciences is becoming very important in developed countries. With
PhD in agricultural sciences, graduates will become competent, strong research
oriented and problem solvers who will serve in various part of life i.e. academia,
private industry, and government.
in Food Sciences
PhD in food
sciences is especially designed for students who have received their masters in
relevant disciplines and want to expand their research in one of following food
PhD in Life Sciences Scholarships [complete directory]
New bio-based fertilisers from organic waste upcycling
Soil, Enviromental and Agriculture science
The candidate will work with various bio-based fertilizers, as well as soil and plant samples from a long-term field experiment and from incubation and pot studies. These samples will be a model in order to improve the long-term tracking of the fate of fertilizer phosphorus (P) in soil plant systems.
Emerging Technologies for Bacterial Spore Contro
food technology, biotechnology, bioprocessing
We are looking for a candidate who is highly motivated to work on a project that aims on controlling bacterial spores with a mild and innovative germination-inactivation strategy. This strategy aims on first germinating bacterial spores in order to make them lose their extreme resistance.
Disentangling the drivers of plant speciation in the Hengduan Mts, China
evoultionary biology, ecology
This PhD project will analyze the degree to which niche adaptation along ecological gradients and allopatric speciation in response to barriers and blocked migration pathways have shaped the exceptional and unique floristic diversity of the Hengduan Mountain region in China.
Ultra Short Thermal Food Processing
food science, bioprocessing, chemical engineering
The objective is the development & technical testing of a USP/USS reactor. The microstructured reactor with high surface to volume ratio needs to be able to realize different residence times, with low spread residence time distributions, by adjustable inner volumes. Final applications for wanted microbial and unwanted biochemical reactions will be evaluated.
Two position : Understanding population and community responses to climate extremes
Biology, life science
Currently, we are looking to hire two PhD candidates to develop and work with experiments to understand population and community level responses to climate extremes. Both PhD projects will involve experimental manipulation of climate extremes (e.g. heat waves and extreme drought) and study the response and recovery of organisms. One PhD will focus on several species of Collembola (Project: Collembola) and the other PhD will work with grassland plant species (Project: Plant). Both PhDs will work in close collaboration and participate in each other's experiments.
Life sciences, Biotechnology
You conduct scientific research into cancer genetics. The research mainly includes the use of (epi)genetic biomarkers for early detection and therapy follow-up for different types of cancer, and their application in liquid biopsies. The research is located in the CMG, and mainly includes genetic techniques.
Oceanography, marine ecology
Project focus ison the effects of multiple anthropogenic stressors (including climate change) on the Arctic biodiversity, and the potential consequences of the biodiversity change to the functioning of the marine ecosystem and the services that it provides.
PhD in Sensory Neurophysiology
Lund Univeristy Sweden
Medicine, Natural Scieces
The main duty of PhD students is to engage in their research studies, which includes participating in research projects and mandatory third cycle courses studies. The work duties can also include teaching and other departmental duties. Some experiments for this project will be carried out at the University of Copenhagen.
PhD student in Sustainable Development (Fisheries and coastal development)
The project has an island perspective and the focus is on Gotland, an island in the middle of the Baltic Sea, but comparative studies with islands in the Indian Ocean and the Pacific are also planned
PhD student position in Food Science
Chalmers University of Technology
The aim of this PhD-project is to investigate whether an intervention with foods with added beta-glucan could affect risk factors of type 2 diabetes among individuals with pre-diabetes and wherther such effecs are dependent on gut microbiota.
PhD Student in Agricultural Economics
ETH Zurich Switzerland
The successful candidate will conduct research on farmers’ pest management decisions in Switzerland with a focus on the role of production, market and institutional risks and farmers’ risk preferences
Doctoral scholarship holder, Radon Health Communication
University of Antwerp Belgium
Communication Studies, Phsycology
A central focus in this PhD will be to disentangle why (some) previous communication campaigns might have been ineffective (wrong target groups?, wrong communication channels?, wrong behavioral determinants tackled?, uncomprehensive or unpersuasive messages?).
