Cambridge MRC DTP iCASE Studentships
The Cambridge MRC DTP is offering 5 fully funded MRC Industry Partner (iCASE) PhD studentships commencing in October 2023.
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 2022.
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.
Each iCASE studentship is fully funded, and includes an annual stipend for 4 years at the UKRI minimum rate (currently £17,688), plus an additional stipend top-up of £2,500 per annum, University fees and research costs.
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 Postgraduate School of Life Sciences and the wider University, and access to the MRC flexible supplement, which can be used to fund a wide range of additional training activities, and opportunities.
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 was the 1st December 2022.
