The Radcliffe Department of Medicine at the University of Oxford is a large, multi-disciplinary department, which aims to tackle some of the world’s biggest health challenges by integrating innovative basic biology with cutting edge clinical research.
The department has internationally renowned programmes in a broad spectrum of sciences related to medicine, including:
Our research spans the translational research spectrum, from basic biological research through to clinical application. A full list of supervisor profiles can be found below.
Our PhD Scholars Programme is open to outstanding candidates of any nationality. It provides fully-funded awards for students wishing to undertake a four year PhD in Medical Sciences.
Further details on the application process are available on the RDM website. Although not part of the selection process we encourage applicants to contact their prospective supervisors to discuss projects and their suitability to carry out research in advance of application.
The closing date for applications is 12 noon (midday) on 10th January 2020.
Interviews will take place during the week commencing 27th January 2020.
Offers will be made in February 2020.
The Radcliffe Department of Medicine actively promotes a family friendly working environment.
