Our DTP issues a new call for projects prior to interviews taking place. The projects available for September 2023 entry will be available in the Autumn of 2022. All MRC DTP projects are available as 1+3 (MRes+ PhD) or as a 4-year PhD. The final decision on which pathway is taken will be made in consultation with candidates who are offered a studentship.
You may contact project supervisors for further information on possible project opportunities. This does not commit a candidate to these laboratories.
