Doctoral Training in AI for Healthcare
The UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in AI for Healthcare brings together world-leading expertise to train innovators who will push forward the frontiers of AI in healthcare and develop new and wider types of AI application. We are open to clinical PhD fellows who are enthusiastic to develop leading edge AI approaches for healthcare in a multidisciplinary setting. Our cohort-based PhD training offers expert supervision and mentoring and integrates the development of technical skills with an appreciation for approaches to human-in-the-loop AI designs that are ethically and socially acceptable.
Chain-Florey Clinical Research Fellowships
Jointly funded by the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences (MRC LMS) and the NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) these PhD fellowships are for clinical trainees looking to pursue a career as an academic clinician. The Chain-Florey Clinical Research Fellowships introduce trainees to cutting edge scientific research with a strong emphasis in basic science which can be applied to clinical problems. Fellows are expected to carry out their research in one of the LMS’s basic science groups and have three years to complete their PhD.

Imperial College Wellcome Trust/GSK Translational Medicine
This programme is designed to train the next generation of clinical scientists in experimental medicine. A central theme is the application of the new tools of clinical investigation, particularly clinical imaging, to the evaluation of novel medical interventions in humans. Successful recruits to the programme have the opportunity to match a project suitable to their medical career goals, to be undertaken during a three-year PhD.
MRC Centre for Molecular Bacteriology and Infection
The MRC Centre for Molecular Bacteriology & Infection (CMBI), is a cross-faculty, multi-disciplinary research centre with a unique focus on the understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying bacterial pathogenesis, antibiotic resistance and persistence and host innate response to bacterial infections. Specifically, the focus of CRTF PhDs will be on providing future clinical academics with the cutting-edge knowledge and analytical skills that will enable them to pursue high quality and clinically relevant independent research in the field of bacterial infection biology.
