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 main round of recruitment for PhD studentships is now closed for applications. The next main round of applications will open in Autumn 2019.
Further studentships outside of the main round
There may also be further individual studentships advertised throughout the year, outside of the ICR's main recruitment round. These studentships have a separate application process.
Applications for our March 2019 PhD recruitment round are now open.
