Convergence Science PhD - 2022 Open for applications

Mar 7, 2022, 16:50 PM by Arnaud Legrand
We are pleased to announce our next phase of recruitment for our prestigious Convergence PhD studentships commencing October 2022


We invite applications from UK graduates or final year undergraduates from a life sciences, chemistry, engineering, or physics background.

Our Convergence Science PhDs are funded by Cancer Research UK and cover tuition fees for UK students only (except where otherwise stated in the project specification); however, international students are also invited to apply subject to outlining how they will meet the difference in tuition fees. We look forward to receiving applications from all candidates and will select those who display the potential to become world leading researchers of the future based on their application and performance at an interview. We are encouraging applications from candidates of Black and ethnic minority backgrounds as they are underrepresented at PhD level within our programme.


Candidates should hold, or expect to gain, either


  • A first, or upper-second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject
  • A master’s degree in a relevant subject


Successful candidates will undertake a four-year research training programme under the guidance of a supervisory team of world-class researchers across the two institutions. Students will receive an annual tax-free stipend, currently £21,000 per annum, and project costs including tuition fees will be underwritten for the four-year duration.

Closing deadline: March 24th at 23:59

We look forward to receiving your application and helping you becoming a world leading interdisciplinary scientist.
