Biomedical Science, Bioinformatics & Data Analysis PhD Programme 2018. NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (London – UK)

Biomedical Science, Bioinformatics & Data Analysis PhD Programme 2018. NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (London – UK)

We are looking to recruit up to 8 outstanding science graduates to a 4 Year PhD Studentship in Biomedical Science, Bioinformatics & Data Analysis Programme to work on internationally-competitive research projects, equipping them to exploit excellence in basic research for improving the health of patient populations; this call is for applications for PhD studentships for September 2018 entry. To facilitate training in Biomedical Informatics, students will benefit from dual supervision from both basic and clinician scientists. Year one of the programme will consist of three rotations through a choice of project areas as well as workshops providing training and development in research skills. Credits acquired for each component will contribute towards an MRes postgraduate degree at the end of year 1.  This will be followed by 3 years of research in a chosen PhD project, where there may be opportunities to work across disciplines through co-supervision of research.

Candidates must possess, or be expected to achieve a 1st or upper 2nd class degree in a relevant subject including the biosciences, chemistry, physics, computer science or mathematics, and be enthusiastic about combining their expertise with other disciplines in the field of healthcare in line with the Biomedical Research Centre.  BRC studentships offer a generous stipend of £20,191 per annum for the 2018/19 academic year; costs for MRes and PhD fees are covered by the BRC as well as funds for research project support.
