Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of global mortality and morbidity. University College London is a world class centre of excellence in cardiovascular research and medicine. Over 400 cardiovascular scientists and cardiologists undertake basic, clinical and population-based research to improve our understanding of disease and provide new diagnostics, therapies and preventative strategies. The British Heart Foundation (BHF) have provided funding for the following postgraduate scheme.
Up to four BHF studentships will be available to work in any area of cardiovascular biomedicine. Research areas include: Fundamental Biology and Discovery Science; Therapeutic and Diagnostic Innovation; Population Science and Experimental Medicine and Data Science and Health Informatics. The first year will provide postgraduate level tuition in relevant topics, training in transferable research skills, opportunities to visit research units and two or three 3 month-long projects, which will provide a basis for the candidate to select a doctoral project and supervisors.
During their PhD thesis research, students will be strongly encouraged to present their work at international meetings, and funds will be made available specifically for this purpose. PhD projects will cover the entire range of activity across the UCL campus, and applicants are therefore advised to familiarise themselves with our research.
Funding and Eligibility
Each student will receive a stipend based on the standard rates set by the BHF.
Stipend rates (with effect from 1st October 2016)
Year 1: £22,278

Tuition fees are funded at the home (UK/EU) rate set by UCL. Non UK/EU applicants will need to show evidence of their ability to cover the difference between overseas and home fees for the duration of study (£17,410 per year in 2016/17) and will also need to satisfy UKBA visa requirements. Applicants should hold, or expect to receive, a relevant first degree from a good university at 1st or 2:1 level. Master’s degree or equivalent relevant experience preferred.
