By collaborating extensively with Imperial College-associated hospitals, centres of research excellence and industry, the CMBI aims to understand molecular and structural mechanisms underlying bacterial pathogenesis, host immunity and antimicrobial resistance. This knowledge is then exploited to develop novel therapeutic approaches to combat bacterial infections.
Up to four fully funded, 3.5-year PhD studentships are available to commence in October 2019. The studentships are open to UK and EU nationals and include home/EU tuition fees and a stipend of £18,000 per year. Please note that EU nationals must have lived in the UK for at least three years prior to the start of the studentship (including for the purpose of full-time education). Applicants who do not meet these eligibility requirements will not be considered.
Successful candidates will have or expect to gain a first class or upper second class Honours degree in biological sciences (or other appropriate science subject), and a Master’s degree or equivalent research experience in a relevant subject area. Applicants are requested to send a full CV (including the names and email addresses of at least two academic referees) and a personal statement outlining how a PhD degree will impact upon their career aspirations. Applicants are also requested to identify two projects (indicating order of preference) from this list for which they wish to be considered.
All applications should be sent to: [email protected].
