MRC Supported 4 Year PhD Programme
An exciting new 4-year PhD Programme, supported by the MRC, to provide interdisciplinary training in molecular virology. The first year provides rotation projects, seminars and tutorials, and this is followed by a 3-year PhD project. Students choose 3 rotation projects, each of 3 months duration, in the first year to acquire skills in virology, cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, structural biology and chemical sciences.
Successful applicants will be based in the world-class Biomedical Sciences Research Complex (BSRC) working in the laboratories of scientists with international reputations in molecular virology. Research interests cover the interaction of viruses with cells, the immune response to infection, the subversion of cellular mechanisms by viruses, the development of vaccines and the design and synthesis of novel anti-viral therapeutics. Opportunities to spend time abroad or in industry may be available during the main PhD project.
Up to six PhD places are available, primarily for UK students, although funding opportunities may be available for exceptional EU and overseas applicants.
