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.
Initial applications should include a full CV, names, addresses and contact details of two academic referees, a personal statement (500 words max) and a covering letter.
In the covering letter, applicants should indicate the project in which they are interested and explain why this is of particular interest to them (please see projects listed below).
You may apply for up to 2 different projects, in which case you will need to submit 2 separate applications .
Contact details for academic staff supervising the projects can be found on each project description.
Completed applications should be submitted to the DTP Team via email by 5pm on the 10th February 2017.
Completed applications may be considered before the deadline.
Please note only shortlisted applicants will be contacted by the project supervisors and we anticipate interviews will be taking place until the end of February.
