The Wellcome / EPSRC centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences at UCL is now accepting applications for Academic Year 2018-2019, with fully funded studentships available.
The Centre brings together a wide team of engineering and clinical experts working to develop new surgical technologies.
We offer 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 UCL 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) 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 on eligibility and funding.
To apply please send a CV and covering letter to Kate Litwinczuk, [email protected] with the subject heading ‘WEISS PhD application’.
Applications are considered all year round until our spaces are filled, but early application is encouraged. Application deadline is 12 July 2018.
