For UK students we will consider any graduate with a minimum of good honours BSc degree. Degree qualifications of equivalent standard (i.e. would qualify for starting a PhD thesis in your home country) obtained in other EU countries are also recognised. There is, however a three year UK/EU residency requirement to be eligible for the full MRC studentship award.
Applications for academic year 2014/15 are now being accepted. For further information on the programme, please contact:
Email : firstname.lastname@example.org
The closing date for applications is Thursday 2 January 2014 and the interviews will take place on Saturday 18 January 2014.
Students who fulfill the 3 year UK /EU residency requirement will receive a non-taxable stipend from the MRC, currently £17,000.
If you are selected for interview, you will be invited to come to London to visit the LMCB on its Open Day on January 2012. Reasonable travelling expenses will be paid, and you will spend the day visiting the laboratories, meeting Graduate Programme group leaders and students already on the Programme and being interviewed. If we make you an offer, we will want you to decide whether or not you wish to accept it within a reasonable period of time as agreed with the programme director, according to your circumstances. If you accept our offer, you will be making a binding commitment to our Programme, and we will ask you to withdraw your applications for other PhD places.
