Paid PhD At The Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics in London

The Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King’s College London, invites applications for a PhD studentship fully funded by The Darwin Trust of Edinburgh, to commence in October 2021. Students will have their tuition fees covered and receive a tax-free stipend of £18,916 per year. The deadline is on Sunday 20th June 2021.

The Randall Centre is a research centre in the School of Basic & Medical Biosciences, which sits in the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine of the King’s College London. 

The programme welcomes applications from a diverse range of backgrounds. Evidence of the ability to carry out research successfully will be an advantage, but this research does not have to be in the same area as your intended PhD project.

Applicants will be reviewed on qualifications, experience and potential to undertake a research degree.

Candidates are invited to choose the area of research they wish to study for a PhD. There are three research sections in the Randall Centre (Molecular Biophysics, Cellular Biophysics, and Muscle Biophysics).

Then you need to contact a supervisor in order to agree upon the research project. 

The studentship is fully funded by The Darwin Trust of Edinburgh. The student will be funded for four years full-time PhD study, receiving a tax-free stipend of £18,916 per year. 

The student does not pay any tuition fee as these are paid by the studentship.

The deadline is on Sunday 20th June 2021. 


Main Criteria

This studentship is only available to students who are citizens of, and ordinarily resident in, countries in Africa and who are not already a graduate of King’s College London.

Candidates should have completed their first degree less than five years prior to the closing deadline for applications.

The studentship is not open to anyone who has already started a PhD.
