MRC Doctoral Training Programme in Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to Biomedical Science

University of Dundee MRC Doctoral Training Programme in Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to Biomedical Science (QIBIOMED)

We seek enthusiastic and dedicated graduates in any life sciences or biomedical subject, computing, mathematics, chemistry and physics to join our innovative PhD programme. We offer students a choice of well-supervised, high quality quantitative and interdisciplinary projects at the forefront of international biomedical science. The research programme involves staff in the School of Life Sciences, School of Medicine and the School of Science and Engineering. The outstanding biomedical research at the University of Dundee was recognised by its very high rankings in REF 2014, with Dundee rated as the top University for Biological Sciences in the UK.

Most students carry out three rotation projects in the first year to experience distinct areas of research and provide experience of complimentary experimental techniques that enable new interdisciplinary approaches to be taken; informed by these rotations they choose the project and lab for their PhD. We also offer iCASE (industrial Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering) studentships. These are 3.5 years of support to start on a defined project that involves an industrial partner, who hosts the student for part of the period of research.

A diverse range of projects, involving, for example computational biology, mathematical modelling, cell and molecular biology, biological chemistry and pharmacology fall under four themes.

  1. Development, Stem Cells and Neurobiology
  2. Infection and Disease
  3. Responses to Cellular Stress
  4. Big Data and Translation
MRC Doctoral Training Programme in Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to Biomedical Science

Key programme features

  • Projects supervised by internationally renowned scientists
  • Training provided in tissue culture, molecular biology, proteomics, cell imaging, flow cytometry, experimental design and research integrity
  • Additional structured training and mentoring covering computational biology, mathematical biology and statistics.
  • Competitive stipend of £16,000 per annum, tuition fees, laptop, contribution to travel and conference costs.

Professional development is an integral part of the programme and is supported through generic skills workshops designed to equip postgraduates with key professional scientific skills. Our students also have access to optional additional training such as “Personal Effectiveness and Career Development”, “Finance, Business and Marketing” and “Project Management and Statistics” through Organisation and Professional Development (OPD) Dundee. The depth and breadth of this programme allows the participant to tailor the training to their own specific requirements.

Application deadline (1st round): 18th January 2019.

Interviews: March 2019.

Eligibility

Applicants must be from within the UK or EU and be expected to hold (or be about to achieve) at least a 2:1 Honours degree in a relevant subject.
