The School of Pharmacy at the University of Nottingham is looking for high calibre, international students to join its new Doctoral Training Centre in Pharmaceutical Sciences for International Students (DTCi). Applicants will have a good degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. pharmacy, chemistry, cell biology, biochemistry, etc) and fulfil our English language entry criteria. All successful applicants will receive support for laboratory expenses and most will be using our innovative electronic laboratory notebook. Below is a list of potential PhD projects offered by our research groups. You'll find more details by clicking on each title. In certain cases, one-year MRes projects may be based on similar research topics. More information is available from www.nottingham.ac.uk/Pharmacy/ProspectiveStudents/Postgraduates/DTCi.aspx.
For all of these projects, you'll need to pay your own tuition fees and living costs. For certain students the School of Pharmacy offers support for living expenses through its DTCi enhancement fund. Scholarship support may also be available via the International Office.
