PhD Studentships

Our four-year PhD training programmes are for outstanding applicants with a scientific background and an interest in radiation biology, cancer and radiotherapy.

Our main PhD studentships are advertised each year in September, with some opportunities available throughout the year. Follow us on Twitter for regular updates.

PhD students will register for their PhD at their primary supervisor’s university (or secondary supervisor’s university, if the primary supervisor’s university is Crick.) They will follow the four-year PhD training programme and will be based in their primary supervisor’s research group.

PhD programme activities

In addition to carrying out their PhD research and participating in core mandatory activities, each trainee will take part in:

  • a ‘customised’ programme developed by their supervisors taking into account specific needs
  • an induction programme that provides an intro on doing a PhD and more detail about CRUK RadNet City of London
  • multi-disciplinary radiation research workshops and seminars
  • participate in cohort-building activities like giving talks, attending meetings, seminars and networking events
  • short research placements
  • training in a vast range of scientific and transferable skills

All students will have a three-person thesis committee made up of Centre faculty that they will meet with regularly to discuss progress, and receive guidance and advice.

Successful candidates will receive a £21,000 tax-free student stipend (living allowance) per year for four years, plus payment of university tuition fees.
