Weizmann Institute of Science PhD studentships

The Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health has established a funded PhD programme in conjunction with the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel.

This programme offers the opportunity to undertake a PhD project where Years 1 and 4 are spent at The University of Manchester and Years 2 and 3 take place in Israel. 

Projects available for entry in September 2017 are listed below. We expect to offer two fully-funded studentships following application, interview and selection.

One of our current students, Petronela Buiga, is currently in the second year of her PhD at the Weizmann Institute. Find out about her experiences by reading her profile.

Eligibility and how to apply

Applicants for these studentships must be from the UK/EU and should hold (or be about to obtain) a minimum Upper Second undergraduate degree in a related subject area.

The funding covers fees and living costs for four years.

Informal enquires may be made to the Manchester supervisor. You should apply online, selecting the most appropriate PhD programme on the online application form from those listed on our programmes page.  

For further information on the required documents to include with your application, see How to Apply.

The deadline for online applications is 5pm on Friday 5 May 2017.

Interviews will be held in Manchester on Wednesday 24 May 2017.
