MRC WIMM Prize PhD Studentships

University of Oxford - MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM)

The MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) has fully funded 4-year Prize PhD (DPhil) Studentships available to start in October 2017. These Studentships are open to outstanding students of any nationality.

The Institute is a world leading molecular and cell biology centre that focuses on research with application to human disease. It houses nearly 500 research and support staff in 47 research groups working on a range of fields in Haematology, Gene Regulation & Epigenetics, Stem Cell Biology, Cancer Biology, Human Genetics, Infection & Immunity and Computational Biology. The Institute is committed to training the next generation of scientists in these fields through its Prize PhD Studentship Programme.

The fully funded Studentships include a stipend of £18,000 per annum and cover University and College fees. 

Further information on the studentships, how to apply, and the projects available can be found at:

Interviews will take place on 23 and 24 and January 2017.
