King’s College London invites applications from prospective qualified students for the 2014/2015 Multidisciplinary Research Studentship. The research will focus on “Applying computational biology to understanding gene regulatory networks in stem cell models of neuropsychiatric disease.” For 2014/15 the funds will support a Multidisciplinary Research Studentship in Computational Biology and Neuroscience within the Department of Neuroscience at the Institute of Psychiatry.
This will allow you to carry out a PhD program of research that cuts across three of the most exciting areas of biology; iPSC models of brain disease, gene regulatory networks and computational biology. While your focus will be computational biology, they fully expect you to become part of a multidisciplinary team of experimental and computational biologists and to take advantage of the training opportunities offered by this unique studentship.
Worth of Award: Tuition fees at the UK/EU rate and an annual stipend (current 2013-14 value £15,726) will be covered for up to 4 years
- Open to: all nationalities.
- Entry requirements: strong first degree in physics, mathematics, bioinformatics, engineering or related subjects
- International students who are required to pay international tuition fees are eligible to apply but will be required to cover the difference between the home/EU and international fee level from alternative sources.
How to Apply
- Applications are done online
- Applications comprising CV, supporting statement and contact details for two referees should be submitted to Samantha Smith <samantha.aylward.kcl.ac.uk>
Deadline: Closing date is May 2, 2014. Later applications will be considered where possible.
