The Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences is an internationally renowned centre for research and teaching within the applied health sciences. This reputation was further enhanced recently with the launch of the Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC), a partnership between the University of Manchester and six NHS Trusts aiming to advance scientific discovery and its translation into patient benefit.
Research opportunities span both the biomedical (genetics, tissue engineering, pharmaceutics) and health (psychology, epidemiology, primary care) sciences with extensive training in multidisciplinary areas. Our PhD training also incorporates transferable skills in aspects such as public engagement, scientific writing and career management to provide an unrivaled depth of support.
The Faculty is currently offering over 50 4-year PhD studentships to UK/EU nationals seeking PhD places commencing October 2013. Funding will provide full support for tuition fees, all associated research costs, conference allowance and annual tax-free stipend (2012 rate £13, 590). Some of our projects provide opportunities for external training placements within industry or partnering institutes.
Projects are available across seven priority themes:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Cell-matrix research
- Developmental and regenerative medicine
- Diabetes and endocrinology
- Inflammation, immunology and repair
- Neuroscience and mental health
- Population and public health
We have an outstanding track record in securing prestigious post-doctoral positions for our PhD graduates across a range of sectors.
Applications are welcomed up to and including Monday 7 January 2013. Full details on available projects and the application process can be found on our website
