Postgraduate research degrees

Postgraduate research in the School of Cancer SciencesInspiring tomorrow’s researchers today

Here in Cancer Sciences we’re passionate about our research. Our subject areas span immunology, virology, the molecular biology of cancer cells, and the development, evaluation and implementation of next generation cancer therapies.

In fact, whatever your particular interests are in cancer research, at least one of our 125 research active staff will be able to nurture you. If you pursue a PhD here, we will train you and challenge you to solve the critical issues facing cancer research. You can make an impact today and tomorrow.

Fancy an intellectual challenge? Then get in touch with our PhD Co-ordinator.

Our currently funded PhD opportunities can be found using the Doctoral Researcher link. 

But even if you can’t find what you’re looking for from this list, we probably have other PhD opportunities. Select a research theme which captures your imagination and contact the research group leaders.
