MRC GW4 BioMed Doctoral Training Partnership

The MRC GW4 BioMed Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) brings together the Universities of Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter to develop the next generation of medical researchers, helping them to be collaborative, curious, critical and confident.

Students will have access to the combined research strengths, training expertise and resources of the four research-intensive universities, with opportunities to participate in interdisciplinarity and 'team science'.

The MRC GW4 BioMed DTP offers an outstanding combination of research excellence, critical mass, joint training experience and geographical proximity coordinated by a well-established infrastructure.

A summary of all projects is available on the GW4 BioMed website.

Apply for an MRC GW4 BioMed studentship at Bath

Applicants to projects based at the University of Bath should apply to the DTP in the first instance. Those who are successful in obtaining an offer of funding from the DTP should then apply for the relevant PhD programme at Bath (e.g. PhD in Biology, PhD in Biochemistry, PhD in Chemistry, PhD in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, PhD in Health, PhD in Mechanical Engineering, PhD in Pharmacy & Pharmacology or PhD in Psychology), stating in the ‘Finance’ section of the application form that they have been awarded a GW4 BioMed MRC studentship and quoting the project title and supervisor’s name in the ‘Your research interests’ section.

More information on the application process may be found on the MRC GW4 BioMed DTP website and the application form once applications open on 25 September 2017. The deadline for applications is 17:00 on 24 November 2017.
