We are seeking enthusiastic scientists to join the next generation of inter-disciplinary researchers who will exploit the wealth of new data being generated in population health sciences. Our innovative four-year PhD programme offers you the opportunity to develop the knowledge and technical skills to become future research leaders in the field of cancer epidemiology.
This 4-year PhD programme is embedded within our £7.7 cross-disciplinary CRUK Integrative Cancer Epidemiology Programme (ICEP).
Our PhD studentships are fully funded for 4 years and have two major components:
We welcome students from a wide range of scientific backgrounds. Our PhD programme and training environment will provide you with the necessary skills to succeed in this field!

You will be hosted by the Population Health Sciences Department at the University of Bristol, a leading UK research university. The ICEP Twitter page @BrisCancerEpi and the University Instagram page showcase Bristol activities and our city.
We have an extensive pool of supervisors and all PhD students are co-supervised by more than one member of staff to provide access to a wide range of skills and expertise.
