As a CDT research student, you will join a world leading interdisciplinary group of over a hundred scientists and clinicians. Our interdisciplinary nature, and location within one of the major teaching hospitals in the UK, provides a unique environment for our focus on rapid translation of cutting-edge research into the clinic.
In parallel with your research project, you will benefit from a dedicated training programme in transferable skills, responsible research and innovation, and entrepreneurship.
In year 2 of their PhD, CDT students will also choose from the following placement options:
• Industry internship with one of our Industry Partners, to understand the gap between research and product development for commercialization;
• International lab visit to one of our Academic Partners or international doctoral training partner networks, to enrich their PhD experience with further academic perspectives.
The placements will normally run for a period of 3 months.
