GW4 Biomed MRC DTP

The GW4 BioMed MRC DTP is offering up to 17 funded studentships across a range of biomedical disciplines, with a start date of October 2021

These studentships provide funding for fees and stipend at the rate set by the UK Research Councils, as well as other research training and support costs, and are available to UK, EU and International students.

About the GW4 BioMed Doctoral Training Partnership

The partnership brings together the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff (lead) and Exeter to develop the next generation of biomedical researchers. Students will have access to the combined research strengths, training expertise and resources of the four research-intensive universities, with opportunities to participate in interdisciplinary and 'team science'. The DTP already has 84 studentships over 5 cohorts.

The 68 projects available for application, are aligned to the following themes;

  • Infection, Immunity and Repair
  • Neuroscience and Mental Health
  • Population Health

Applications open on 21st September 2020 and close at 5.00pm on 23rd November 2020.

Studentships will be 3.5 years full time or up to 7 years part-time.

Funding

This studentship is funded through GW4BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership. It consists of UK tuition fees, as well as a Doctoral Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£15,560 p.a. for 2021/22, updated each year).

Additional research training and support funding of up to £5,000 per annum is also available.

Eligibility

Residency: The GW4 BioMed MRC DTP studentships are available to UK, EU and International applicants. International students (including EU applicants) are now eligible to apply for these studentships but should note that they may have to pay the difference between the home UKRI fee and the Institutional International student fees at their chosen Institution. Information on International fee rates are available on each Institution's website for comparison, and we will update applicants when further information becomes available.

Academic criteria: Applicants for a studentship must have obtained, or be about to obtain, a UK degree, or the equivalent qualification gained outside the UK, in an appropriate area of medical sciences. However, the DTP also welcomes students from non-medical backgrounds, especially in areas of computing, mathematics and the physical sciences. Please check the entry requirements of the home institution for each project of interest before completing an application. Academic qualifications are considered alongside significant relevant non-academic experience.

English requirements: If English is not your first language you will need to meet the English language requirements of the university that will host your PhD by the start of the programme. This will be at least 6.5 in IELTS or an acceptable equivalent. Please refer to the relevant university for further information.
