Departmental Prize Studentships


Every year the Department offers fully funded, four year studentships to work with one of the Group Leaders at the Dunn School. In contrast to many other four year PhD studentships, successful applicants can start in their supervisor's laboratory immediately and so have a full four years to work on their main research project. This increases your productivity and enhances your subsequent career. 

Individuals of all nationalities are welcome to apply.

Applications for the next intake (entry in October 2019) will open in October 2018 with a closing date for applications in early January 2019.  

The funding covers the entire cost of University and College fees,  research and travel costs of up to £5,300 pa,  and includes a tax-free stipend of ~£16,500 pa for four years. The studentships are funded through various sources including the Medical Research Council, Oxford EPA Graduate Scholarships, the Clarendon Fund, and Oxford Colleges.
