The Cambridge MRC Doctoral Training Program (DTP) is a partnership between the University of Cambridge and the Babraham Institute, and includes as associate partners the MRC Institutes and Units in Cambridge, and other University Partner Institutes.
We are offering at least 10 fully funded PhD studentships for projects commencing in October 2016. Details of the available projects fall under the broad themes of:
- Infection and Immunity
- Molecular and Cellular
- Neuroscience and Mental Health
- Population and Systems Medicine
The studentships provide an annual stipend for 3.5 years, full fees (if eligible) 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.
UK and EEA Students who have, or are expecting to attain at least an upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in relevant biological subjects, are invited to apply.
For full details of the programme and how to apply can be be found on the Cambridge MRC DTP website.
