Each year at the ICR we offer around 20 fully funded PhD studentships
We are committed to attracting and developing the best minds in the world to join us in our mission – to make the discoveries that defeat cancer.
Studentship funding is typically for a period of up to four years, and comes from the ICR and funding bodies such as Cancer Research UK, industrial partners, and other charities.
Our PhD students are an integral part of the research team. 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 NHS Foundation Trust, and with access to state-of-the-art facilities and the support of expert technical staff.
Our March 2020 and UBIMOTIF PhD recruitment rounds opened on March 5 2020. Applications for the round were extended until May 1, or May 8 2020 at 11.55pm UK time (see individual projects for details) and are now closed.
Candidates may be contacted by recruiting supervisors before the new deadline.
