Closing Date: Monday 26th March 2012
Recognised globally for the quality of its biomedical and clinical research, St George’s is home to six research centres located within three academic divisions. Each academic division and the joint faculty contains talented researchers conducting a wide range of basic, clinical, translational and practice-based research. St George's has a number of cutting edge facilities to assist researchers and students within the University and St George's Healthcare NHS Trust.
The University shares a campus with St. George’s Hospital, one of the UK’s busiest hospitals, serving a community of over one million people in the capital; a community that is nationally representative and relevant to the research of medicine and biological sciences in their broadest sense.
St George’s is now offering both fully funded (3 year) PhD Studentships across the Divisions of Biomedical Sciences and Clinical Sciences, in addition to (4 year) Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAs) in the Division of Biomedical Sciences.
The Studentships and GTAs are available to start in September 2012. A total of 7 studentships and 3 GTAs will be funded. All studentships will provide a stipend (at or above RCUK rates) and full PhD tuition fees (at UK/EU rate).
Interested candidates are invited to look at the details of the projects available by following the links below and to identify the project(s) which best suits their interests and research experience to date.
Candidates would normally be expected to apply for the single project that best fits their experience and skills, but where there are several relevant project titles listed, interested candidates may submit an application for a maximum of two projects. (In the event that a candidate wishes to apply for two projects, they may nominate two titles from the list of 3 year studentships, two of the GTA projects, or one of each).
Please visit the SGUL web site for further information, entry requirements and the application process.
The closing date for receipt of all applications (both for the PhD studentships and the GTAs) is 1700 (GMT) on Monday 26th March 2012.
