The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
Crick PhD Programme, 2018
Closing date: 13 November 2018 1200 (GMT)
The Crick PhD programme is designed to attract the brightest scientific minds and is a fabulous opportunity for highly motivated and exceptionally talented people to embark on their career in biomedical research.
There are 200 PhD students at various stages of their four‐year PhDs at the Crick at any one time. The students contribute to the international community of the Crick; 60% are from elsewhere in the EU or from further afield.
The energy and enthusiasm of the student population are a vital part of Crick's research community, and the comprehensive Crick PhD programme ensures that students have strong career prospects in science.
Students accepted onto the Crick PhD programme register with a partner university. You will attend an induction week and follow a dedicated four-year programme, agreed with the partner universities.
Your progress will be monitored through a series of annual progression points, and you will be required to present your research each year.
Throughout the PhD programme, you will receive tailored training on presenting and writing about your research, including specialised IT software training and workshops on talking about science to both scientific and non-specialist audiences.
You will also be encouraged to make the most of the wide range of training courses available at the Crick, and to access the skills training programme within your university.
Attending scientific conferences provides valuable exposure to the wider scientific community, and is an exciting and important learning experience. You will have access to funding to allow you to present your work at national and international conferences and we encourage you to do so, particularly in the second half of your PhD.
All succesful applicants will receive a Crick PhD Studentship - this will cover all fees and provide a £22 000 tax-free living allowance for all four years of study.
