We invite applications for PhDs from talented graduates or final year undergraduates. Candidates are welcome to apply wherever in the world they are currently based. We particularly welcome British applicants from Black and ethnic minority backgrounds, as they are underrepresented at PhD level, both within the ICR and nationwide.
We will assess your application and interview performance to select individuals with the potential to become world leading cancer researchers. We consider all applications on merit and have a strong commitment to enhancing the diversity of our staff and students.
Candidates should hold, or, expect to gain either;
- A first, or, upper-second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject.
- A masters degree in a relevant subject.
Successful candidates will undertake a four-year research training programme under the guidance of a team of our world-class researchers. Studentships start in October 2021 unless otherwise specified. Students will receive an annual stipend, currently £21,000 per annum. Tuition fees and project costs are paid for the four-year duration.
