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 2018 will be advertised in the coming months. 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.
