Post-doctoral research and fellowships

Develop your career with us. We frequently have a variety of postdoctoral research assistant positions available, or we can advise you on the best route to apply for fellowship funding. We have a thriving research environment, with purpose-built laboratories to support much of our research along with all the modern IT facilities expected in a leading research institution. Our research is internationally renowned and supported through funding from government and industrial sources in the UK, the European Union and the rest of the world.

A very important feature of this research are our interdisciplinary research groups: by focusing our research effort through these groups means we are able to build dedicated, high-quality facilities and tackle large problems through expertise that spans engineering and bioscience disciplines.

Masters Degree (M.Sc.).

We have a number of relevant programmes at Sheffield that provide an ideal stepping stone into research or industry.

M.Sc. BBE (Biological & Bioprocess Engineering)

BBE is based on the application of engineering principles to the molecular biosciences. On this course you will become skilled in industry relevant disciplines that harness the power of the convergence of engineering and bioscience. In a growing field where there is a lack of suitably qualified graduates, we work closely with industry to ensure you have the most up to date skills.
