Up to two PhD scholarships, starting January 2025, are available competitively to students recruited to the MSc Cancer Cell and Molecular Biology or MSc Molecular Genetics and register in the January 2024 intake.
Notes on scholarships:
Up to two full PhD scholarships are available to students recruited to the MSc Cancer Cell and Molecular Biology or MSc Molecular Genetics in January 2024.
The Scholarships will be available from January 2025 on completion of the MSc course and consist of a full stipend (currently £18,622/yr) for 3.5 yrs, research costs and a travel and training fund. Each will attract a home fee waiver, with a full international fee waiver available competitively. Visa and NHS supplement fees are not included. In the absence of an international fee waiver, overseas students are expected to fund the difference in cost between the home and basic international fee. Scholarship awards will be conditional on an overall Distinction in the MSc and receipt of an equivalent assessment in their research project.
And a bit about process:
Scholarship applicants will be interviewed by a College panel including the Director of Post-graduate Research and Director of Taught Postgraduates or their Deputies. A call for potential PhD projects will be undertaken and applicants will also be able to develop a project with a CLS academic member of staff. Any project must be within the strategic research priorities of the College.
You do not need to apply for the PhD studentship yet but you do need to apply for and register for the MSc Cancer Cell and Molecular Biology or MSc Molecular Genetics for the January 2024 intake.
