Medical Imaging

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training


The EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTP) are a subset of 3.5 year PhD programs available in Medical Imaging at King's College London School of Biomedical Engineering and Imaging Sciences. Medical imaging has become an essential tool for clinical diagnosis, treatment and monitoring, playing an important role in the improvement of public health. Nowadays a variety of imaging techniques, including x-ray, CT, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) and nuclear medicine, are routinely used in medical practices. However, despite significant advances during the last decades, researches aim to further improve these imaging techniques and to enhance the information and clinical value provided by the images.

These DTP studentships come with a stipend of £16,500 per year and a generous consumables and travel budget. 

Only home UK or EU candidates fulfilling the 3-year UK residency requirement are eligible for the EPSRC DTP studentships. Non-residential EU students receive fees-only funding. One single studentship per year can be awarded with top-up overseas fees (including stipend). Studentships may vary in length (3, 3.5 or 4 years) but are expected to be 3.5 years on average.
