PhD Studentship in Haematological Malignancies

The University of Cambridge Department of Haematology is offering four fully funded PhD studentships to start in October 2024. The studentships are for projects focussed on haematological malignancies and are funded by the Kay Kendall Leukaemia Fund and a generous private donation.

Cambridge is one of the best places in the world to study haematological malignancies. We have the largest concentration of researchers working on haematological malignancies in Europe, with seventeen research groups based around the city making us a globally significant centre for research in leukaemia, lymphoma and pre-leukaemic conditions. World leading PIs based in Cambridge include Peter Campbell, Bertie Göttgens, Tony Green, Brian Huntly, Nicole Soranzo, George Vassiliou and Alan Warren. The Department of Haematology has an exceptional record in training young researchers. Over thirty students who studied for their PhDs in the Department have become PIs, either in Cambridge or elsewhere.

The PhD studentship programme offers a choice of projects in the Department of Haematology covering leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloproliferative neoplasms and clonal haematopoiesis. Approaches used in the projects include single cell analysis, computational modelling, ribosome profiling, metabolomics and CRISPR-Cas9, and they include the study of micropeptides and telomeres.

Funding includes a stipend of £20,000 per year for at least three years, tuition fees at the Home or International rate and funds to cover consumables and other costs associated with your project.

Applicants should have a strong interest in haematological malignancies and biomedical research. Applicants should have or shortly expect to obtain a minimum of a good upper second class Honours degree from a UK university, or a degree of an equivalent standard from an overseas university, in a relevant discipline. A Master's degree is not a requirement. Experience of relevant research is highly desirable. Full details of the University's minimum requirements for postgraduate study are available here: https: // www. requirements
