Five industrial CASE (iCASE) studentships are available for doctoral study at Oxford, to start in October 2019. Each iCASE studentship is fully-funded for four years with a stipend of £20,000 p.a., all tuition fees paid, plus a research training support grant. The studentships will be based in the University as part of the Oxford-MRC DTP, and will also involve close collaboration with a commercial partner, including at least 3 months working at the company during the course of the D.Phil. project.
For full details, see: www.medsci.ox.ac.uk/study/graduateschool/mrcdtp/icase2019
Applications must be received by 12 noon (UK time) Friday 11 January 2019.
The five projects are:
Designed to nurture the academic entrepreneurs of the future, the Enterprise studentship programme offers a stimulating educational experience as part of the Oxford-MRC DTP cohort, with the additional benefit of working closely with a non-academic partner. This will provide industrial training opportunities and an insight into how commercial science is conducted alongside a superb academic base within the University.
To be eligible for a full award, applicants must have no restrictions on how long they can stay in the UK and must have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the studentship. Further details about residence requirements may be obtained here.
Details on Entry Requirements can be found here.

To make a formal application, please complete the University’s online application form for the DPhil in Biochemistry (course code RD_BC1). In your application, you must indicate that you are applying for an advertised studentship competition, using the reference code iCASE. Please indicate clearly which project(s) you are applying for, in order of preference. It is possible to apply for up to 3 MRC iCASE projects on your application. You will need to provide a CV outlining your academic achievements and relevant experience, and a personal statement (500 words max) detailing your interest and fit for the studentship. Note that no project proposal is required for the iCASE studentship applications. If you have any specific queries about the iCASE application process, please email [email protected].
