About the Project
Candidates are expected to hold (or be about to obtain) a minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a topic related to biological and medical sciences. Candidates with experience in cell biology, development or immunology or with an interest in reproductive medicine are encouraged to apply.
For information on how to apply for this project, please visit the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health Doctoral Academy website (https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/study/research/apply/). Informal enquiries may be made directly to the primary supervisor. On the online application form select PhD Immunology.
For international students we also offer a unique 4 year PhD programme that gives you the opportunity to undertake an accredited Teaching Certificate whilst carrying out an independent research project across a range of biological, medical and health sciences.
