Each year we have multiple fully funded studentships available for our 3.5 year PhD programme commencing each October. These studentships provide a generous stipend, tuition fees and bench fees for 3.5 years. This programme is designed for students who have a clear idea of the field in which they wish to work and who have solid laboratory or research experience. It provides the opportunity to undertake a PhD project that will make a novel contribution to scientific knowledge and understanding. Each studentship focuses on its own unique research project within one of our multiple research groups.
We expect to begin recruiting for the 2020 Programme in October 2019.
Applicants must hold, or expect to obtain, a first or upper second-class honours degree or equivalent in an appropriate scientific subject from a recognised academic institution. Whilst a master’s degree is preferable, it is not essential.
Whilst the funding for these studentships is open to students worldwide, funding for overseas students is more restricted. For this reason, only exceptional overseas students will be considered.
