The Convergence Science PhDs exposes trainees to research across both institutions through joint supervision from the Institute of Cancer Research and Imperial College London academics. Funding is available for a number of highly competitive Convergence Science PhD Studentships starting in October 2021. We are looking for proposals suitable for a four year PhD project from the ICR and Imperial supervisors working together from distinct disciplines.
Proposals must address a challenge in cancer, align with one or more of our research themes and take on a convergence approach, which will provide the student training in multiple disciplines and the integration of novel ideas from the different disciplines.
If you are interested in applying and would like to connect with academics from the ICR and Imperial to build research proposals, we are hosting a Supervisor Connection meeting on November 12th at 14.00 - 16.00 to facilitate potential partnerships.
Please email Dr Garrick Wilson to confirm your interest to attend no later than November 10th.
At this meeting you will be asked to give a short elevator pitch on your research interest. The elevator pitches will showcase cancer research at the ICR and engineering and physical sciences research at Imperial. Moreover, supervisors will be able to identify where true synergies exist to co-develop a proposal.
