Studentships

PhD Studentships in the Cell Biology of Cancer

As a world-leading cancer research centre, the CRUK Beatson Institute supports cutting edge work into the molecular mechanisms of cancer development. We provide an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the-art core services and advanced technologies with special emphasis on imaging and in vivo models.

We are looking for students with a very good degree in a Life Sciences subject and an aptitude for experimental work, who are also highly committed to pursuing a PhD and a career in cancer research. The Beatson has an excellent reputation and success record in training its graduate students. Students, whilst being trained at the Institute working within our research groups, will matriculate with the University of Glasgow.

Our PhD studentships are for a maximum of 4 years, and currently provide students with an annual stipend of £19,000 and matriculation fees for home, EU or overseas students.

Details of the projects available to start in October 2022 can be found below - each project description includes a link to the project's application form. Please note, CV applications made via the FindAPhD User Enquiry email will NOT be accepted. Application closing date: 9 January 2022. Interviews will be held 7-11 February 2022.

Please note, once you have submitted your application and received an acknowledgement email, your references will be requested and we ask that these are (ideally) sent to us within 2 weeks.
