Other DPhil Programmes
Students who apply to and are accepted on these DPhil/PhD programmes may still be able to work with a supervisor/in a laboratory in this Department. As explained on the Medical Sciences Division website, there are two main types of DPhil/PhD programme: direct-entry or structured.
In these programmes students join their main supervisor's laboratory in their first year. Other direct-entry programmes that students can apply to and work in this Department are:
- DPhil in Cancer Science
- DPhil in Cardiovascular Science
- Doctoral Training Fellowship Scheme for Clinicians
- DPhil Biomedical Sciences (NIH OxCam) This is for students from the United States to train at Oxford and the NIH in Bethesda, USA
Structured DPhil Programmes
These programmes, which are hosted by the Medical Sciences and the Mathematical, Physical, and Life Sciences Doctoral Training Centres, have a first year that involves rotations through two or more supervisors' laboratories before the student begins their main research project. Group leaders in this Department can supervise students on the following programmes:
- Cellular Structural Biology (Wellcome Trust)
- Cardiovascular Science (British Heart Foundation)
- Interdisciplinary Bioscience (BBSRC)
Information for clinicians, including funding sources, can be found on the Medical Sciences Division webpage.
