The Medical Research Council Unit at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) invites applications for two PhD studentships from international students.
The London Intercollegiate Doctoral Training Partnership (MRC LID) is a partnership between St George’s, University of London (SGUL) and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC).
MRC LID brings together two outstanding specialist schools to provide integrated skills training to develop a cohort of biomedical and public health scientists with world-class expertise in areas of strategic importance to UK and global medical research.
Application Deadline: 15th January 2023
Eligible Countries: International
Number of Awards: 2
Value of Award: MRC LSHTM studentships cover fee (at UKRI fee rate), research, travel and other expenses.
Duration of Programme: The studentships will start in September 2023 and will be full-time for a maximum time of 4 years.
- Applicants must hold, or expect to obtain before September 2023, an undergraduate degree (or equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK) in a relevant area. Ideally, the DTP would expect applicants to hold a 1st or 2.1 Honours undergraduate degree. Where applicants hold a 2.2 undergraduate degree (or equivalent), they should very clearly show their relevant prior experience and skills, and their suitability to undertake a PhD, in their application to provide a competitive comparison.
- Those applying for +4 Studentships should also preferably hold, or expect to obtain, a relevant Masters, or have a combination of relevant qualifications and experience which demonstrates equivalent ability and attainment. This may include a period of employment or internship in a relevant environment. Both transcripts and employment history will be reviewed.
