BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership
1+3 PhD Studentships 2017

Imperial College is offering fully funded 4-year studentships to outstanding students for Research Training in the basic and applied biosciences to start in October 2017.

Applicants are expected to hold, or to be awarded a first class or a good upper second class BSc Degree, or an equivalent qualification, by October 2017.

The studentships are offered on a 1+3 basis (1 Year of Masters study followed by 3 years of PhD Research). In every case, the Masters Course will commence in October 2017 followed by the commencement of the PhD in October 2018. Only UK and EU students who meet the UK residency requirements are eligible to apply (minimum of three years of continuous residency in the UK immediately prior to the start of the PhD). Non-EU nationals are not eligible.

The studentship covers:
(i) an annual tax-free stipend at the standard Research Council rate,
(ii) contribution towards research costs, and
(iii) tuition fees at the UK/EU rate.
