Cambridge Institute for Medical Research

Cambridge Institute for Medical Research funded 4 Year PhD opportunities

Closing date for applications: Friday 3 January 2014

Applications are invited for two 4-year studentships on the CIMR 4 Year PhD Programme. The Programme provides fees at the UK/EU rate and a generous living allowance.

The CIMR 4 Year PhD Programme has been established in recognition of the scientific excellence of the CIMR and the desire to train more students in science using our excellent facilities and wide range of academic disciplines. The CIMR has ~35 group leaders working in a range of disease mechanisms which fall into 4 broad categories: misfolded proteins and disease; intracellular membrane traffic and cell biology; autoimmune disease; haematopoietic stem cell biology. All members of the CIMR will contribute to the training programme.

In the first year, students rotate through 3 ten-week mini-projects and take lecturers and courses, which provide excellent grounding in core scientific areas; a portfolio of research reports is examined at the end of the year for a masters degree (MRes). Students then select an area for in-depth doctoral study in years 2-4.

Students with or expecting to attain at least an upper second class honours degree are invited to apply.
