Applications for PhD Studentships in the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health

Imperial College London and King’s College London

We are delighted to welcome applications for three PhD studentships within the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health, starting in 2017. One PhD studentship will be based at the Environmental Research Group (King’s College London) while the other two 3,5 year PhD studentships co-funded by the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and Imperial College MRC-DTP will be based in the Small Area Health Statistics Unit (SAHSU), which is part of the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment & Health.

Candidates will go through a recruitment process similar to those who applied directly to Imperial’s MRC-DTP recent call. Successful candidates will be supported by the training programme structure in the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health and will be provided with bespoke research training to ensure they are equipped with the appropriate skills and experience to become first class researchers.

The studentships provide a generous stipend (£18,000/year) and includes tuition fees and an annual allowance for consumables.


The eligibility criteria are set by the Medical Research Council.

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 with a strong quantitative/computational background in biostatistics, epidemiology, data sciences, bioinformatics or mathematics and also have a Masters degree (with minimum merit pass or equivalent) or equivalent research experience by the start of their PhD.

To be eligible for fully funded PhD Studentships, applicants must meet the following residency criteria:

  1. UK residency status or
  2. been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for three years prior to the start of the studentship. This means you must normally have been residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences).

If neither of the residency criteria apply to you, but you are an EU resident, you may apply for a fees-only studentship. Non-EU international students will not be eligible.

Your residency will be verified as part of the application process. For queries regarding your eligibility, please contact Jessica Law.
