Wellcome Sanger Institute Four-Year PhD Studentships
Registered at the University of Cambridge
The Wellcome Sanger Institute is a world leading genomics institute at the forefront of experimental and computational genome research. Our faculty apply large scale genomic tools to a range of research areas, including the investigation of human genetic variation in health, cancer and other diseases, gene function and genome variation in cells, bacterial and parasitic human pathogens, and the genomic diversity of complex organisms. For a full list of faculty research interests please see the Scientific Groups .
Genomics is assuming an increasingly prominent place in biological research. Our PhD programme equips students with a unique blend of experimental and informatics skills, maximising their competitiveness for future opportunities. The research infrastructure and resources available at the Sanger Institute are outstanding, and the PhD programme makes full use of these to deliver scientific excellence, with our students regularly leading high impact publications.
We welcome applications from students who wish to utilise genomics to deliver key insights into human health and disease, or the Tree of Life. Twelve highly competitive fully funded (covering University fees and stipend) four-year studentships will be available from October 2021. We value diversity, and the studentships are open to UK and international students. Students apply to the Institute rather than to specific faculty members, and will have the opportunity to rotate in three different faculty groups before selecting their PhD project.
For further information and details on how to apply please see the PhD Programmes page . Application closing date: 3rd December 2020 (09:00 GMT).
Wellcome Sanger Institute Clinical PhD Fellowships
We also provide funding for two Clinical Research Training Fellowships each year as part of the University of Cambridge Wellcome PhD Programme for Clinicians. For further information please see Wellcome-MRC . Application closing date: 15th December 2020 (midday GMT).
The Wellcome Sanger Institute is a world leading genomics research centre. We undertake large-scale research that forms the foundations of knowledge in biology and medicine. Our findings are used to improve health and to understand life on Earth. Find out more at www.sanger.ac.uk or follow us on Twitter, Facebook , LinkedIn , Youtube and on our Blog .
