Four industrial CASE (iCASE) studentships are available for doctoral study at Oxford to start in October 2020. Each iCASE studentship is fully-funded for four years with a stipend of £20,000 p.a., all course fees paid, plus a research training support grant. The studentships will be based in the University as part of the Oxford-MRC Doctoral Training Partnership, and will also involve close collaboration with a commercial partner, including at least 3 months working at the company during the course of the DPhil project.
For full details, see: www.medsci.ox.ac.uk/study/graduateschool/mrcdtp/icase2020
Applications must be received by 12 noon (UK time) Friday 10 January 2020.

Designed to nurture the academic entrepreneurs of the future, the Enterprise studentship programme offers a stimulating educational experience as part of the Oxford-MRC Doctoral Training Partnership 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.
