For supervisors

Call for Applications for PhD Studentship Projects

The Institute of Chemical Biology (ICB) has been awarded an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in physical sciences innovation in Chemical Biology for bio-industry and healthcare.  
 
The ICB invites proposals for 4 year PhD studentships for studentships starting October 2018
 
 

Annual Scheme - Entry 2018


The “annual scheme” is now open for applications and will be funding projects that are concerned with the development of new molecular tools and technologies to study specific interactions that address key challenges in the pharma, biotech, personal care or agriscience sectors. Project proposals concerned with either translational or basic research will be considered but in both instances there must be underpinning innovation in the physical sciences.

Guidelines, Forms and Deadlines

Application Form

Guidelines


We strongly recommend you read the guidelines.
There is a restriction on the number of applications per supervisor. No more than two applications by the same supervisor will be accepted in this scheme this year (regardless of their position on the application form).

Top Up Call - Entry 2018

The top-up PhD funding scheme is for supervisors who are able to provide a financial contribution towards a 4 year PhD programme starting in October 2017. The source of financial contribution may be from industry, charities or College and other Universities. However, RCUK funding is not eligible for top-up.

To be eligible for the top-up scheme supervisors need to provide 50% financial contribution to the studentship (approx. £53K).

The scheme is funding projects that are concerned with the development of new molecular tools and technologies to study specific interactions that address key challenges in the pharma, biotech, personal care or agriscience sectors.

Guidelines, Forms and Deadlines

Please read the top-up scheme guidelines carefully before applying. Applications must be made by completing the top-up application form.

This is a rolling call with studentships considered on a case by case basis. All usual rules with respect to CDT remit apply.
