Convergence Science Non-Clinical PhD
Students will be exposed to the world leading research, expertise and infrastructure across both institutions.
We invite applications to our highly competitive Convergence Science PhD Programme, which is four-years in length under the guidance of a supervisory team of world-class researchers across the two institutions. Successful candidates will receive a fixed, tax-free annual stipend of £23,000 per annum, and project costs including tuition fees will be underwritten for the four-year duration. Students enrolled on the programme will be provided with bespoke training to develop the skills required to work across the boundaries of different disciplines.

We invite applications from talented UK graduates or final year undergraduates from a life science, chemistry, computer science, engineering, or physics background. Convergence Science PhDs 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.
