Months of entry
We are seeking applications from outstanding graduates who are motivated to become the next generation of interdisciplinary cardiovascular scientists. Students on this programme benefit from a vibrant and collegiate environment, as well as cutting-edge interdisciplinary training.
Successful applicants will enrol on a 1+3 year PhD course, with the first year providing unique opportunities to develop a firm foundation in cardiovascular research across the disciplines. This first year includes two four-month research projects aimed at delivering advanced practical training in areas that underpin your subsequent three-year main project.
Your choice of final three-year project will be made during the recruitment process so that your project direction is clear from the outset. The Faculty of Life Sciences website contains some example project titles.
PhD projects will be cross-disciplinary and involve at least two principal investigators from different disciplines. Additional research and transferable skills training will be offered by the programme, along with competitive funds for travel to conferences and workshops.
