The Schools of Pharmacy at the University of Nottingham and University College London, together with EPSRC and industrial partners (including Alliance Boots, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline and Pfizer) are offering up to 12 fully-funded PhD studentships commencing September 2017.
The four-year doctoral programme involves a series of training projects and modules at academic and industry sites in the first year of study before commencing full PhD projects. In addition, integrated meetings across University and industry sites will take place, allowing unrivalled access for students to pharmaceutical research expertise.
Each University offers 6 PhD studentships however supervisory teams and training projects will integrate across both Universities and with the industrial partners. The studentships are open to UK/EU students only, and provide a stipend and full fees. Interested applicants should have, or expect to gain, a good first degree in a relevant subject (Pharmacy, Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Mathematics, and related sciences). Due to the high demand for these studentships, we can only consider applicants with, or expecting, at least a 2.1 degree or equivalent or a Masters degree.
