The Centre’s PhD programme provides an outstanding opportunity for early career training in this dynamic, multidisciplinary environment. In addition, delivery of high quality research outputs from these studentships (high impact publications, novel therapeutic strategies and clinical trial concepts) is viewed as strategically critical for the Centre. Three prestigious PhD training fellowships are awarded each year, two of which are non-clinical studentships. Each fellowship provides full funding for student fees, laboratory consumables, and stipend.
Successful applicants will be have a strong academic track record, experience in laboratory research, and will be highly motivated and ambitious. They will have a collegiate mind set, and as well as benefitting from the diverse expertise, resources and opportunities the Centre studentship programme has to offer, they will be willing to work in partnership with Centre colleagues to promote and publicise the research of the Centre. As part of this, studentships will provide opportunities for science engagement activities in the cancer area.
