Our PhD students are an integral part of the team at the ICR: we don't just train students to carry out cutting-edge cancer research, we enable and guide them as they make their own discoveries and help to defeat cancer. Like all of our scientists, PhD students at the ICR benefit from all that our dedicated research sites at Chelsea and Sutton in London have to offer: working in a unique multidisciplinary environment alongside world leaders in cancer research and clinicians from the Royal Marsden, and with access to state-of-the-art facilities and the support of expert technical staff.
The aim of our PhD studentships is to train students to carry out cutting-edge cancer research.
Students will be based in one of the eight research divisions:
- Breast Cancer Research
- Cancer Biology
- Cancer Therapeutics
- Clinical Studies
- Genetics and Epidemiology
- Molecular Pathology
- Radiotherapy and Imaging
- Structural Biology
Students will be supervised by institute recognised supervisors in their relevant area of research, and will gain the skills and confidence needed to work in the multidisciplinary environment required for cancer research.
The key features of the training will be:
- acquisition of background knowledge of cancer research across a broad range of disciplines
- the opportunity to pursue a single research problem over a four-year period
- training in relevant areas
