The Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injury Studies (CBIS) at Imperial College London is inviting applications for its 3-year, fully-funded Ph.D. Studentships for the 2019/2020 academic session.

With access to world-leading academics, facilities, and networks, students benefit from a
highly stimulating environment where they undertake a range of additional training and
development opportunities as part of being part of a large CBIS Ph.D. cohort. Students also
have opportunities to share their research through a number of media, including conference attendance and public engagement and outreach activities.

The Centre is comprised of multidisciplinary collaborations between military medical officers and civilian engineers and scientists that address difficult research issues with a clinically-led approach. Studying the effects of blast injury develops and advances treatment, rehabilitation, and recovery from injury while improving mitigation and promoting understanding of complex trauma. Students will benefit from a highly stimulating environment where they undertake a range of additional training and development opportunities as part of the Centre’s Ph.D. cohort.
