CRUK Manchester Institute
Application Deadline: FRIDAY 8 DECEMBER 2023 - 1700 hrs (GMT)
Interview: THURSDAY 18 JANUARY 2024, PATERSON NEW BUILDING, WITHINGTON, MANCHESTER, M20 4BX
The Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute is proud to be a diverse, open and global Institute. Our priority, and that of the University of Manchester, is to support our current students and welcome new ones from Europe and other continents, we therefore encourage students of all nationalities to apply for the programme.
We welcome applications from enthusiastic and ambitious candidates with a strong academic track record to our PhD programme. Applicants should hold or expect to graduate with a First or minimum upper-second class undergraduate honours degree (or equivalent from a non-UK university) in a relevant subject and Masters-level and/or other laboratory research experience in cancer. Laboratory research experience as part of, or outside of a university degree course or a Master-level degree in a relevant subject is advantageous but is not a conditional requirement in making an application.
All applications will be considered equally irrespective of ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, gender, religion/belief, age and nationality. To help us monitor equality, diversity and inclusion within the Institute, you will be asked to complete and submit an EDI monitoring form during the application process. Equal opportunities information will not be shared and will not form any part of the selection process or divulged to members of the selection, recruiting or interview panels.
Successful applicants will receive a non-taxable annual stipend (living allowance) of £21,000 GBP per annum, bench and tuition fees (home and international) covering the full 4 years. Registration and graduation will be affiliated to the University of Manchester, UK.
The CRUK Manchester Institute is located over two adjacent sites; the Oglesby Cancer Research Building, Manchester Cancer Research Centre and our new research facilities in the Paterson Building, Withington, South Manchester next to the The Christie NHS Foundation Trust.
We plan to hold in-person interviews on site; however, we will take into consideration any change in circumstances at the time to ensure the safety of all concerned and in amending the interview format to virtual if deemed appropriate.
