Quantitative and Biophysical Biology
Have you trained in physics, engineering, mathematics or computer science?
Would you like to use your skills to tackle complex problems in biology?
If yes, then the Wellcome Trust PhD Programme in Quantitative and Biophysical Biology may be for you! We will provide you with the training needed to use these skills to address fundamental questions that underpin human development and offer new insights into disease.
We are seeking 6 outstanding research students to join our Wellcome Trust-funded Four Year PhD Programme, for entry in September 2017. We offer an excellent intellectual and scientific environment and a choice of well-funded research laboratories. The first year of the Wellcome Trust PhD Programme involves two short research projects and skills workshops to help you apply your skills to biological problems. You will then be ready to select your PhD research topic for the remaining three years.
Studentships cover tuition fees and generous stipend (starting at approximately £20k/€23k per year).
