The LMS is a Medical Research Council funded Institute based at the Hammersmith Hospital Campus of Imperial College London. We are seeking science graduates who are excited by science, tenacious, and curiosity-driven to join our international PhD programme. Research projects taking innovative experimental and computational approaches to advance the understanding of biology and its application to medicine are available across our 3 scientific sections: Epigenetics, Genes and Metabolism, and Quantitative Biology.
The programme is designed for students who have a clear idea of the field in which they wish to work and who have solid laboratory or research experience. It provides the opportunity to undertake a PhD project that will make a novel contribution to scientific knowledge and understanding. These studentship provide a generous stipend (£21,000pa) and tuition fees for 3.5 years.
All interviews will be held remotely and will consist of the following:
Applicants are expected to hold a first class or upper second class honours degree (or its equivalent) in an appropriate science subject from a recognised university, and also have a Masters degree or equivalent research experience by the start of their PhD. There are no residency restrictions for these studentships, although there is more funding available for UK/EU studentships, which make the International studentships highly competitive.
All applicants are also subject to Imperial College entry requirements (Including English Language Requirements for all non-native English speakers)
All completed applications forms and supporting references must be submitted by this date to be considered
