Physical Biology of Stem Cells

MRC 4-Year PhD Programme in Stem Cell Biology & Medicine

Is this you?:

  • Physical Sciences, Mathematical Sciences or Computational Sciences background?
  • Interested in applying your training to aspects of Stem Cell Biology?
  • Passion for scientific research & hold (or expect to) a relevant 1st degree at the highest level?

If so, the Cambridge Stem Cell Institute would like to hear from you.

This programme is targeted specifically to applicants with a Physical Sciences, Mathematical or Computational Sciences background, who are interested in applying their training to aspects of stem cell biology.

Up to two studentships are available.

The course runs in parallel to the Wellcome Trust 1+3 Programme, with the distinction that students recruited to the MRC Programme will be offered rotation projects in the areas of Physical Sciences/ Mathematical/Computational Sciences.

It provides students with an opportunity to spend time in three different labs during their first ‘rotation’ year, before deciding where to undertake their thesis work for years 2-4.

Programme Outline

During the first year students will:

  • Perform laboratory rotations in three different participating groups working on both basic and translational stem cell biology;
  • Study fundamental aspects of Stem Cell Biology through a series of teaching modules led by leaders in the field;
  • Learn a variety of techniques, such as advanced imaging, flow cytometry, and management of complex data sets.

Application Deadline: 6 February 2017
