New PhD Programme
UCL has developed a new Interdisciplinary PhD Programme in bioscience and bioengineering. The programme covers all levels of biology, from molecules through to cells and whole animal physiology, and provides training in cutting edge techniques, including bioengineering, data analysis, computational and mathematical modelling, imaging, structural biology and systems approaches >>more
Jennifer Rohn and Buzz Baum (LMCB) "Comparative RNAi screening identifies a conserved core metazoan actinome by phenotype"
Jennifer Rohn and Buzz Baum (LMCB) "Identification and characterization of a set of conserved and new regulators of cytoskeletal organization, cell morphology and migration"
How to Apply
The MRes in Systems Biology is designed for students who wish to undertake a PhD degree in this area, or who wish to enter employment in an advanced capacity in industry or the public sector in the field of systems biology. Applications are invited from students whose first degree is in a biological, physical, computational, engineering or mathematical discipline.
A minimum of a 2:1 Honours degree in a scientific or medical discipline from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Applicants should be confident using computers and show some evidence of numeracy (minimum GCSE Mathematics or equivalent, or a module with a good mark in their degree).
How to Apply
Applications should be submitted preferably by 31st March 2012 in order to guarantee consideration. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) must submit their applications by 31st March, and preferably earlier as applications will be evaluated and offers may be made on a rolling basis.
Applications are welcomed
from international students. Students whose first language is not English are
required to provide evidence of their ability to understand, speak and write
English to as standards that will ensure that language problems do not impede
their academic progress. UCL accepts a number of qualifications including the
British Council International English Language Testing System (IELTS). UCL’s Language Centre offers both a one year full time Certificate in English for Special purposes and a range of pre-sessional English Language Courses for those who do not meet UCL’s minimum standard.
The International Office is a centre of expertise and advice for
overseas students, who are welcome to seek help or guidance in many areas such
as visas, immigration, housing, finance, English Language, tuition and fees.
