MVLS/EPSRC Studentships 2018

Stipend £14,777 (2018/19 rate)
Start date: 1 October 2018

MVLS/EPSRC PhD fully funded positions are available within the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences, University of Glasgow. Our aim is to deliver high quality, collaborative research and training for our PhD students within the Biosciences. The West of Scotland is a key region in the UK for academic excellence, industrial support and investment.

Areas of research include (but are not restricted to) mathematical biology, bioenergy, synthetic biology, nanobiology and research into healthcare devices. A list of available projects, abstracts and supervisors can be found HERE. We strongly recommend that students examine the list of projects available (titles detailed below), and contact potential supervisors to discuss the projects before applying.
