The University of Southampton (UoS) and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) are Russell Group universities with world-leading research programmes and are proud to offer Medical Research Council funded doctoral training programme (MRC DTP) PhD studentships. Students are based at UoS or QMUL, researching topics including cancer, neurological, inflammatory or infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance or global health, with a focus on interdisciplinary studies and whole organism, applying state-of-the-art computational and experimental methodologies to medical research, with potential links with industry (iCASE studentship). Our PhD students join a vibrant student community for a 4-year funded study period from October 2024.

Programme Structure

There are two types of studentships available: MRes/PhD and iCASE.

For MRes/PhD, the programme is 1 year MRes + 3 years PhD. In year 1, you will choose three rotation projects, alongside taught modules and practical training. In years 2-4, you undertake your PhD, usually developing one of your rotation projects. iCASE students may select their PhD project from year 1.

We will select those who display the potential to become, or to support, the world-leading biomedical researchers of the future based on their application and performance at interview. However, we particularly welcome applicants from black and ethnic minority backgrounds, as they are under-represented nationwide in STEM roles.
