Eight 3-year full time PhD Studentships in the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (GOS ICH) funded by the Child Health Research CIO are available, commencing on 1st October 2024.

Project portfolio

The Child Health Research PhD studentship portfolio offers a broad range of PhD project proposals ranging from molecular genetics to population health, stem cells to cognitive neuroscience, fundamental to clinical studies. All projects are hosted at the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (GOS ICH), a division of the UCL Faculty of Population Health Sciences. Together with its partner, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust, GOS ICH forms the largest concentration of children’s health research in Europe.

Research environment

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.

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

Developmental Biology and Cancer

Developmental Neurosciences

Genetics and Genomic Medicine

Infection, Immunity, Inflammation

Population, Policy, and Practice

It may also be possible to conduct research at the University of Toronto through a GOS ICH / University of Toronto project. Applicants who apply for a GOS ICH / University of Toronto PhD project must be committed to spending 6 months of their PhD carrying out research at the University of Toronto.

Eligibility

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.

Successful applicants will then be required to apply to and register on the Child Health PhD programme to take up the PhD studentship. Clinical graduates are also welcome to apply.

Successful applicants will receive a starting stipend of £21,181* per annum (including London weighting) and the studentships cover the cost of tuition fees based on the UK (Home) rate. Subject to confirmation, further funding will be available to cover Overseas fees for some of these studentships. Non-UK students can apply, but where not eligible for UK fees, may have to fund the difference between the UK (Home) and Overseas fees if further funding is not available. *See: Studentship budgets.

Application process
All applicants are required to select a top choice project from the Child Health Research PhD studentship portfolio and contact a supervisor of that project, who may be able to provide a supporting statement to include in your application. For information about the studentships, how to apply, and the projects available, please see the GOS ICH Postgraduate Research Funding website. You are asked to read the studentship application instructions carefully before applying.
