The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute has one remaining funded PhD project on offer commencing in September 2019: "Elucidating the role of the tumour microenvironment in non-small cell lung cancer" in the Transcriptional Networks in Lung Cancer Group.
Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute (CRUK MI) core funded studentships are advertised in October annually with interviews typically conducted in January. However, additional vacancies may be advertised throughout the year and all enquires are welcome from candidates expecting to obtain a first or upper second class honours undergraduate degree (internationally equivalent).
CRUK MI is a leading cancer research institute within The University of Manchester, core funded by Cancer Research UK, the largest independent cancer research organisation in the world. Research spans the whole spectrum of cancer research from programmes investigating the molecular and cellular basis of cancer, to those focused on translational research and the development of therapeutics. The Institute has recently become a partner in the CRUK Centre of Excellence for Lung Cancer and is a key part of the Belfast-Manchester Movember Centre of Excellence for Prostate Cancer.
Sponsorship includes generous stipend, tuition & bench fees. Applications are invited from exceptionally high calibre students, graduates or final year undergraduates who have, or are expected to obtain a first or upper second class honours degree and who are highly committed to pursuing a PhD in cancer research.
