The Wellcome / EPSRC centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences is now accepting applications for Academic Year 2017-2018.
The newly established Wellcome / EPSRC centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences at UCL brings together a wide team of engineering and clinical experts working to develop new surgical technologies.
The advances of the Centre will create an intuitive and highly personalised surgical platform that enables more precise, less invasive procedures. Greater precision also means more patients will be viable for complicated but life-altering surgery and those treated will benefit from safer, more localised treatments and a shorter recovery time in hospital. This will be achieved through advances in engineering sciences in intraoperative imaging and sensing, data fusion and extraction, human-technology interfaces, tissue modelling, interventional instrumentation and surgical navigation which can be applied to surgical applications across the body.

The Wellcome / EPSRC centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences at UCL offers aspiring candidates an unparalleled training and research opportunity to become the next-generation leaders in translational research in Surgical and Interventional Sciences, at the top-rated university for research strength.
Our PhD training offers a four year training programme where students will undertake a research project, a mixture of taught courses drawn from existing Masters level courses and a main PhD project (Entry to a three year studentship is possible for those who already have relevant Masters level training or equivalent). Training is affiliated with the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Medical Imaging.
Applications are invited from candidates who have achieved, or are predicted, a first class or upper second class honours undergraduate degree (or equivalent international qualifications or experience) and who can demonstrate an interest in healthcare engineering for surgical and interventional sciences. Our preferred subject areas are Physical Sciences (Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Physics). Applicants with degrees in Chemistry or Life Sciences must demonstrate strong mathematical skills.
Studentships available cover the cost of fees for UK/EU students and a stipend of £16,851 (tax free).
Due to funding restrictions we can only accept students from outside the EU if they are in possession of a fully funded scholarship or have their own funding. Further information.
