Our Training

DiMeN is a diverse, interdisciplinary community of researchers across the North of England researching the major health problems facing the world today.


Our partner institutions (Universities of Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle, York and Sheffield) are internationally recognised as centres of research excellence that can offer you highly specialised expertise from supervisory teams and access to state-of-the-art facilities to deliver high impact research.

We are very proud of our student-centred ethos and committed to supporting you throughout your PhD. As part of the DTP, we offer bespoke training in key skills sought after in early career researchers, as well as opportunities to broaden your career horizons in a range of non-academic sectors. 


Our programme of core training offers four specialist events per year as valuable opportunities to benefit from peer support and build a professional network with our community of DiMeN researchers.
