The MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) has fully funded 4-year Prize PhD (DPhil) Studentships available to start in October 2020. These Studentships are open to outstanding students of any nationality who wish to train in experimental and/or computational biology.
The Institute is a world leading molecular and cell biology centre that focuses on research with application to human disease including bioinformatics analysis. It houses over 500 research and support staff in more than 50 research groups working on a range of fields in Haematology, Gene Regulation & Epigenetics, Stem Cell Biology, Computational Biology, Cancer Biology, Human Genetics, Infection & Immunity. The Institute is committed to training the next generation of scientists in these fields through its Prize PhD Studentship Programme.
The fully funded studentships include a stipend of £18,000 per annum and cover University and College fees.
Further information on the studentships, how to apply, and the projects available can be found here.
Closing date for submission of applications: Friday, 10 January 2020, 12 noon (UK time).
Interviews will take place the week commencing 27 January 2020.
