The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Medical Imaging at King’s College London and Imperial College London, brings together two world leading research focused universities in a unique collaboration to create an interdisciplinary training approach specifically designed to meet challenges in Healthcare and Medical Imaging. With complementary strengths in basic sciences, engineering and clinical translation, the CDT has strong links with key industrial partners and close strategic and geographical links with St Thomas’ Hospital, a top-rated teaching hospital where the centre is based. The CDT is training and nurturing the next generation of imaging scientists, research and industry leaders.
We offer a 4-year doctoral training programme, with the first year embedded in our MRes Medical Imaging Sciences, followed by a 3-year PhD which is complemented by a bespoke training programme in transferable skills, innovation and entrepreneurship.
There also are a small number of PhD projects available that are available for students who are able to start immediately. If these sound suitable for you, please take a look at their project descriptions.
Applications are invited from candidates with interest in multi-disciplinary research and training in medical imaging, and a 1st class or upper second degree in any engineering subject, mathematics, computer science, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, biology or pharmacology. You can read more about our eligibility criteria here.
Each studentship is funded for 4 years, including tuition fees, a tax-free stipend of +£16k per year and a generous allowance for research consumables and conference travel.
Candidates are invited to submit a pre-application form by email, which can be found on our website, along with information about potential supervisors and project descriptions. If you have any questions, please get in touch via [email protected]
Deadline for applications is the 9th January 2017
