The Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology is a world-renowned research institute housed in a state-of-the-art purpose-built research facility. The Institute is currently offering five fully funded, highly prestigious 4-year prize PhD studentships awarded by the Kennedy Trust and RACE – Versus Arthritis.
The awards are available to students worldwide and include a generous stipend (over £22,000) and competitive allowance for laboratory expenses, training and international conference travel. The application deadline is noon, Friday 10th January 2020. Interviews of short-listed candidates will take place in the week commencing 29th – 31st January 2020.
Biomedical research projects across a wide range of themes, including immunology, inflammation biology, microbiology, regenerative medicine, biophysics, genome engineering, cell, molecular and systems biology, genetics and genomics.
Exceptional research facilities in a new state-of-the-art integrated institute at a world-class university including single molecule biophysics to single cell genomics.
Strong commitment to academic and practical training in a wide range of methodologies, as well as career development and guidance reflected by subsequent post-graduate employment positions.
Successful applicants will join an innovative and exciting PhD (DPhil) programme within a vibrant and international student community and will benefit from an excellent management and mentoring programme. Training will be provided in core and transferrable skills to equip graduates with a comprehensive set of personal and professional skills, thus maximising each student's potential and building the foundation for a successful career.
We welcome applicants who have obtained (or are predicted to obtain) a first or upper second class (2i) BSc degree or equivalent who wish to study for a PhD (DPhil) the available studentships and the application process.
Please note only applications received through the official channel can be considered. For further information about the application process please contact Prof. Mark Coles, the Director of Graduate Studies: [email protected].
