The Application round for 2019 Studentships has now closed. Please revisit this site later in the year for details on how to apply for admission in 2020.
The information below relates to 2019 admission – we expect to have a similar offering for 2020 admission.
We are offering at least 10 fully funded PhD studentships commencing in October 2019 in four themes covering Population and Systems Medicine, Infection and Immunity, Molecular and Cellular Science, Neuroscience and Mental Health.
Examples of available projects can be found here:
The studentships provide an annual stipend of £18,000 for 3.5 years, University fees and research costs. The duration of the studentship allows for a funded period of write-up prior to thesis submission.
In addition to excellent research facilities, students will have access to a wide variety of training and researcher development activities, many of which are offered through the Graduate School of Life Sciences and the wider University, and have the opportunity to apply for an additional 3 month funded external placement.
The closing date for applications is 7th December 2018.
Interviews: week commencing 28th January 2019.
