Convergence Science PhD


The CRUK Convergence Science Centre at The Institute of Cancer Research and Imperial College London is pleased to announce that funding is available for several prestigious PhD studentships commencing October 2022. 

We invite applications from talented graduates or final year undergraduates from a life science, chemistry, engineering, or physics background. Convergence Science PhDs cover tuition fees for students with “home fees” status except where otherwise stated in the project specification. 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 the ICR and Imperial.

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. 

 Informal enquires should be sent to –

Application deadline:  24 March 2022 11:59PM GMT
