Funding Opportunities

Please be aware that this is not a funded PhD. If you are interested in applying for this course of study it is vital that you work with the supervisor supporting your application to secure funding.

The IMS-MRL have no regularly available funds to support three-year PhD students, although studentships funded by UK Research Councils, medical charities or other sources may be available within individual research groups. Applications can also be considered from students with a good prospect of securing their own funding, for example, through awards from the University Trusts and other scholarships.

Before applying for this course, prospective students should contact individual IMS-MRL principal investigators whose work interests them to discuss potential projects. Applicants should name their potential supervisor and provide a short description of the research area in their application form.
