Applications for 2022 are now open.
Cambridge MRC DTP iCASE Studentships
The Cambridge MRC DTP is offering five fully funded four-year MRC CASE (iCASE) PhD studentships to start October 2022.
The Medical Research Council (MRC) and University of Cambridge actively support equality, diversity and inclusion and we encourage applications from eligible applicants from all sections of society.
These studentships allow postgraduate research students to receive high quality research training, with the additional benefit of working closely with an industrial partner. These collaborations will provide MRC iCASE students with unique technical and transferable skills, as well as an insight into how commercial science is conducted, and entrepreneurial opportunities.
The industry partner specifies a research project that will be of importance to them, and provides a placement at their premises for the student of at least 3 months, together with an additional non-academic supervisor. Students will need to select from a list available projects, based either in the School of Clinical Medicine, or the School of Biological Science. https://mrcdtp.medschl.cam.ac.uk/prospective-students/icase-projects/
This list may continued to be updated, and additional projects added until the end of October 2021.
Each studentship is fully-funded for four years with a stipend of £18,000 p.a.,and includes all course fees, plus a research training support grant. We are able to offer industrial electives for a period of up to 3 months during the programme for studentships awarded by the MRC DTP.
Please note the the Cambridge MRC DTP will not be offering ordinary DTP studentships from 2022.
Please see the How to Apply page for further details on how to fill out your application form. The final closing date for all applications is the 2nd December 2021.
