Child Health Research PhD Studentships & UCL GOS ICH / University of Toronto PhD Studentship

The UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (GOS ICH) is a division of the UCL Faculty of Population Health Sciences. Together with its partner, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust, ICH forms the largest concentration of children’s health research in Europe.

The great strength of UCL's research was reaffirmed in REF 2021. GOS ICH was part of a UCL return to the Clinical Medicine sub-panel 1, and Public Health, Health Services and Primary Care. 93% of UCL's research was rated as either world-leading or internationally excellent.  In assessment of research power, UCL’s performance was top in the UK for research power in the main panels of ‘medicine, health and life sciences’ and ‘social sciences’. The NIHR Great Ormond Street Hospital Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), underpins all translational research at GOS ICH and GOSH.

The Institute is committed to high quality postgraduate education and has a strong track record of training and support for its postgraduates. A high level of interaction exists across the Institute between basic scientists, clinicians, and population health scientists.

The Institute is offering several research studentships for the academic year 2023-24, supported by the Child Health Research PhD Programme.  In addition, a funded studentship is available whereby the student from GOS ICH will be expected to spend 6 months of their PhD carrying out research at the University of Toronto as part of a reciprocal academic exchange arrangement with the University.  This placement will typically take place during the second year of the studentship.

Applicants selected for funding will be able to choose from the following research areas:

  • Developmental Biology and Cancer
  • Developmental Neurosciences
  • Genetics and Genomics Medicine
  • Infection, Immunity, Inflammation
  • Population, Policy, and Practice

Applications are invited from committed individuals wishing to do basic, translational or clinical research for the benefit of child health, and who have a good first degree (UK 1st class or upper 2nd class honours degree or equivalent from abroad) and who will have a master's degree (or equivalent work experience) in a relevant discipline by the time of registration.

Applicants who apply for the GOS ICH / University of Toronto PhD Studentship must be committed to spending 6 months of their PhD carrying out research at the University of Toronto.

For information about the studentships, how to apply, and the projects available, please refer to the GOS ICH Postgraduate Research Funding website. You are asked to read the application instructions for each funded opportunity carefully. Please note, applications that are submitted without following the correct procedure may not be considered.

Closing date for applications to GOS ICH: 09:00 Monday 9th January 2023

Interview dates: from mid-March 2023, dates to be confirmed.
