King's College London are seeking students of academic excellence to join our Health Faculties.
Health is a dominant and unifying theme at King’s College London which is internationally recognised for excellence in biomedical and health research and training. King’s is the academic partner of King’s Health Partners, one of the UK’s leading Academic Health Sciences Centres.
Two 4 year fully-funded PhD positions are available to commence in October 2019, with successful candidates joining the MRC Doctoral Training Partnership. They will start their PhD project immediately in October 2019 and will participate in all other training and cohort activities of the MRC DTP.
The objective of our Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) is to select motivated and curiosity-driven students and provide them with outstanding training, tailored flexibly to their individual needs and interests. We will equip them with the intellectual and technical skills that are needed for undertaking cutting-edge biomedical research and complement this with key transferable skills (including public engagement, business development and entrepreneurship) to ensure that they emerge as well-rounded scientists, prepared for their next career stage (whether in research or outside). Our excellent clinical setting will ensure all students benefit from an understanding of the context of medical research, helping develop scientists with a strong translational ethos.
iCASE projects are a collaboration between an academic institution and a commercial or non-academic partner; offering a unique opportunity to receive high quality research training that bridges academic and industry partners. The MRC DTP are recruiting to four PhD projects tackling key strategic skills shortages:
|Refining haematopoietic stem cell populations and their gene modification as a therapy for rare inherited disorders||Details|
|Trans-generational transmission of obesity and obesity-induced liver disease – a role for maternal microbiota and Toll-like receptors||Details|
|Exploration of TMS as a potential early biomarker for ALS and application to novel drug discovery||Details|
Each studentship is fully funded for 4 years, including tuition fees, stipend, research consumables and conference travel:
The funding available supports Home/EU students within standard research council restrictions. EU students are only eligible for a full studentship if they have lived, worked or studied within the UK for 3 years prior to the funding commencing. Unfortunately, we cannot accept applications from non-EU candidates.
