2015 Movember Foundation PhD Studentships in Bioinformatics
The application submission deadline is 12pm (noon) on Monday 26 October 2015.
This year, with funding from the Movember Foundation, we will be using our PhD scheme to address a clear gap that we believe is likely to limit progress in prostate cancer in the coming years. That area is bioinformatics. We believe that a significant gap already exists with an insufficient number of researchers with expertise in both statistics/data analysis and prostate cancer.
The scheme is open only to applicants proposing to train a bioinformatician to PhD level with a project that aligns with our new research strategy.
Studentships will be for either three or four years and usually provide funds for a tax-free stipend, fees, research expenses and travel. It is not necessary to have identified a student at the application stage.
We will also consider bids for multiple prostate cancer-focussed PhDs from institutions already running large scale PhD schemes in bioinformatics, or that will allow institutions to set up new programmes with a cohort of prostate cancer focussed students.
