Call for Applications for PhD studentships in Cardiovascular Sciences commencing 2022-23
The King’s College London British Heart Foundation (BHF) Centre of Research Excellence offers an outstanding environment for cardiovascular research training. It includes a large number of internationally rated investigators whose expertise encompasses a broad range of cardiac and vascular biomedicine. The School of Cardiovascular Medicine & Sciences is a core constituent of the BHF Centre and its research features in Nature, Circulation, Journal of Clinical Investigation and other high impact factor journals. Clinical and pre-clinical research is at the heart of King’s College London priorities and activities, and the College was ranked 16th worldwide in Times Higher Education 2021 in this field.
We have several studentships available on our prestigious 4-year MRes+PhD BHF programme to commence in late September 2022. The programme aims to impart a broad understanding of the fundamental biology of the cardiovascular system, the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying disorders of this system, and multi-disciplinary approaches towards the development of novel interventions for the amelioration of such disorders. We believe that it is especially important for the students progressing through this programme to develop an integrated approach that allows them to use a range of complementary methods and techniques to address focused questions. These objectives are achieved through a combination of research mini-projects, workshops and a library project in Year 1, leading to the award of an MRes in Cardiovascular Sciences, followed by a specialised 3-year PhD project in Years 2-4 that is complemented by additional graduate training activities. All principal supervisors on the programme have a strong track record of publications, grant income, successful supervision and development of the new generation of cardiovascular leaders.
