In the CDT in Chemical Biology: Innovations for the Life Sciences, students apply for specific research projects rather than for generic positions within the CDT. Competition for ICB CDT studentships is high, ensuring that only the best applicants are awarded a place on the course.
The EPSRC CDT studentship awards 4 years of a fully-funded stipend, which includes UK/EU fees, the UKRI annual bursary and a £2000 London annual allowance. This covers a 1 year Masters of Research (MRes) in Chemical Biology & Bioentrepreneurship, followed by a 3 year PhD.
Potential students are interviewed by the supervisors and the CDT Directors.
