UK PhD Studentships at the Institute of Cancer Research 2009 2010

PhD Studentships for October 2009

The Institute of Cancer Research (a College of the University of
London) is a world-class cancer research organisation with HEFCE RAE
ratings of international excellence across all of its research
programmes. In partnership with The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation
Trust we form the largest comprehensive cancer centre in Europe,
dedicated to research that extends from epidemiology, genetics and
molecular biology, through drug discovery and development, to cancer
diagnosis and patient treatment. This makes us uniquely placed to
work towards our vision that people may live their lives free from
the fear of cancer as a life threatening disease.

Applications for graduate studentships starting in October 2009 are
invited from suitably-qualified graduates or final year
undergraduates who hold or expect to gain a first/upper second class
honours degree or equivalent in Physics or a related subject.
Successful candidates will undertake a four year research training
programme under the guidance of named supervisors. Successful
applicants will receive an annual stipend - £19,096 (inner London -
Chester Beatty Laboratories, Fulham Road) or £17,770 (outer London -
Sutton Campus).
