King’s College London MRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) iCollaborative Awards in Science and Engineering (iCASE) Studentships in Biomedical Sciences

Applications Open: Monday 16th March
Application Deadline: Sunday 26th April (23:59)

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.

Industrial Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering (iCASE) Studentships

Five 4 year fully-funded PhD positions are available to commence in September 2020, with successful candidates joining the MRC Doctoral Training Partnership. They will start their PhD project immediately in September 2020 and will participate in all other training and cohort activities of the MRC DTP.

About Us

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.

Projects

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 five PhD projects tackling key strategic skills shortages:

  • 1.5 Are young females with ADHD masking the signs of their condition? Developing digital/informatic techniques to identify and uncover hidden impairment and promote early intervention
  • 2.5 Novel treatment for thirst
  • 3.5 Identifying biomarkers of psoriasis-Driven Metabolic Disease
  • 4.5 Microfluidics-based bioprocessing platform for high-throughput cell and gene therapy manufacturing applications
  • 5.5 Trans-generational transmission of obesity and obesity-induced liver disease – a role for maternal microbiota and Toll-like receptors

Funding

Each studentship is fully funded for 4 years, including tuition fees, stipend, research consumables and conference travel:

  • Stipend: Students will receive a tax-free stipend for each year of study; for 2020/2021 this will be £19,785 per annum.
  • Bench fees: A generous allowance (£6,700) is provided for research consumables and for attending UK and international conferences. MRC DTP CASE students will also be eligible to apply for the Flexible Supplement Fund.

Eligibility

The funding available supports Home/EU students withinstandard 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.
