The EPSRC and MRC CDT in Biomedical Imaging is an exciting collaboration between the Universities of Oxford and Nottingham. The programme combines world-leading expertise in all aspects of cellular and clinical biomedical imaging methodology across both institutions to create the next generation of industrial, healthcare and academic leaders in this vital field of research.
Studentship applications are now invited to take up a small number of newly-announced industry-linked four-year postgraduate studentships, funded by EPSRC. Linked projects include topics on positron emission tomography (PET) image analysis, lung ultrasound, and liver imaging. All projects are supervised primarily by an Oxford or Nottingham supervisor (as determined by the university applied to), but include the exciting opportunity to work in partnership with an industry supervisor on a problem of industrial relevance.
Outline project descriptions can be found at www.onbicdt.ox.ac.uk.
The successful applicant will be admitted to the Oxford-Nottingham Biomedical Imaging CDT, which will provide the student with a strong biomedical imaging foundation through an intensive training programme lasting the first seven months of the programme. Doctoral research will commence after the training period and will be based principally at the academic host institution. The studentships are available to start 2nd October 2017 and are subject to standard EPSRC CDT rules for eligibility. They are open to all EU citizens normally resident in the UK. The studentship includes a stipend of at least £14,553 per annum, and College and University fees at the Home/EU rate.
We invite applications from students with a range of academic backgrounds, including Engineering, Biochemistry, Physics, Chemistry, Statistics, Mathematics and Computing, who have received, or are on target to achieve, a strong 2:1 degree or above.
For further details regarding the studentship, including the application process, please contact [email protected]. Initial enquiries should include a CV.
Final applications will require a CV, statement of purpose, three references and a transcript of your undergraduate degree and subsequent graduate degrees. The statement of purpose should indicate the applicant’s preferred project choice, and rank any other projects of interest. The deadline for final applications will be 12 noon on 9th June 2017.
