Fully funded four-year studentships are available for September 2019 to join Warwick’s MRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP). The training programme involves an exciting one-year MSc in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research and then a three-year PhD project in world-leading laboratory based biomedical research that uses novel approaches from engineering or the mathematical, computational or physical sciences. Students will benefit from a comprehensive training programme that offers advanced workshops, transferable skills training and cohort learning events and conferences with ~ 50 other students.
A series of taught modules, including frontier methods in biomedical research, principles and techniques in molecular biology and analytical science, advanced microscopy and imaging, molecular modelling and physical biology of the cell and two laboratory-based research projects.
The MSc year is followed by a three-year PhD project in either molecular, cellular and tissue dynamics or microbiology and infection – with the possibility of a collaboration with industry or an international placement at either an A*STAR institute, Singapore or the MRC Unit in The Gambia.
