  • UCL is starting a PhD training programme designed to attract researchers with the highest intellectual and scientific skills to the field of biomedical and life sciences.

    A total of 100 studentships will be available over the next three years through funding provided by the UCL Faculty of Biomedical Sciences and the NIHR Biomedical Research Centres at UCLH, Moorfields and Great Ormond Street Hospitals.

    Studentships will be awarded to those individuals best able to demonstrate their intellectual promise (likely holding an excellent first degree in science, engineering or medicine), an evident capacity for critical thinking, and a desire to address fundamental questions in biomedical and life sciences relevant to human health and wellbeing.

    The specific focus of these studentships can range from investigations into fundamental aspects of human health and disease or translational approaches to prevention and early disease detection, through to the development of novel therapies and interventions, addressing global health issues such as HIV/AIDS in the context of global politics and economics or the application of mathematical techniques to basic questions in biology and biomedicine. The intention is to encourage outstanding individuals to engage in innovative research across a broad canvas.

    Please note the closing date is Wednesday 23 June 2010.
