Our PhD Programme is highly competitive. We seek ambitious, motivated students and fellows who aim to launch and develop a career in world leading cancer research.

The Clinical Research Training Fellowships and Non-clinical Studentships are an important strategic resource. As such, all projects within the scheme fit within our overall strategy to translate research into patient benefit in order to drive the adoption of more personalised treatment approaches.

Students and Training Fellows will benefit from:

  • New facilities providing state-of-the-art technologies for cancer researchers and clinical trials support staff close to existing resources. This will facilitate collaborations and provide a seamless link between basic, translational and clinical research to take findings from the laboratory to the clinic.
  • Generous stipends / salaries (role specific), University tuition fees and running expenses.
  • An intellectually challenging, innovative and supportive environment.
  • A diverse and in depth training and development programme in transferable skills leading to excellent career opportunities.
