The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research council (EPSRC) and Medical Research Council (MRC) have provided funding for 12 studentships (fees and stipend) for the joint Oxford-Nottingham Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Imaging.
This four-year doctoral programme consists of one year of training and two short research projects in the first year, followed by a three year research project. As well as academic training, students will further benefit from a research skills programme which covers areas such as project management, presentation skills, research ethics and commercial awareness.
Students are registered at either The University of Nottingham or the University of Oxford. However, all students spend their first year at Oxford and spend the remaining three years at their chosen university.
The programme facilitates the development of leading-edge research in all aspects of biomedical imaging technology and application, either as purely academic projects, or in cooperation with the programme’s industrial partners, in order to create the next generation of leaders in biomedical imaging.
For full programme details please visit the EPSRC-MRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Imaging website.
The source of funding is a mixture of EPSRC, MRC, university, industrial partner and charitable funding.
Restrictions on eligibility apply. Please visit the EPSRC-MRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Imaging website for more details.
Applicants will be expected to have strong mathematical skills, and be predicted to achieve or already hold a first-class or an upper-second-class undergraduate degree (or equivalent international qualification) in a physical or life science.
