Applications are now open for the 2015 PhD Studentship in Cancer and Genetics Study at Cardiff University in UK; EU, UK and International students are advised to take advantage of the opening and send in their applications.
The Institute of Cancer and Genetics is one Centre within the School of Medicine where students can conduct their research. Full details of all the research areas available can be found through the Medicine (PhD/MPhil/MD) programme. The Institute is a merger of the Institute of Medical Genetics and sections of Oncology, Surgery, Pathology, Haematology, and Gynaecology Oncology.
It brings together researchers to promote translational research, employing model systems to develop new cancer therapeutics and diagnostics and take them through to the clinic.
This studentship consists of full UK/EU tuition fees, as well as a Doctoral Stipend matching UK Research Council National Minimum (£14,057 p.a. for 2015/16, updated each year). The studentship is awarded for the duration of 3 years.
Notification: Shortlisted candidates will then be invited to submit a standard application for Postgraduate Study via the Online Application Service.
