MRC Cancer Unit - PhD Opportunities, 2018

The Medical Research Council Cancer Unit at the University of Cambridge is a leading centre for cancer research in the UK. Our aim is to undertake research that advances our understanding of the earliest steps in the emergence of cancer, and to use this knowledge for early diagnosis, risk stratification and clinical intervention, through the development of innovative enabling technologies. The Unit is based within the Hutchison/MRC Research Centre on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, and possesses excellent research facilities, strong collaborations with clinicians and colleagues in other disciplines, and a vibrant and supportive working environment.

We will have a number of PhD opportunities for entry in October, 2018.  

 Please note that  the  competition for the MRC Doctoral Training Awards (DTA) at the Unit is now closed. The application deadline for this specific source of funding was the 30th of November, 2017.

Should you be interested in working with any of our groups, please contact the group leader concerned via email to discuss suitable projects and funding options. Please note that all applications for the GATES Internation and other Graduate Funding competitions (administered by the Cambridge Trusts) must be made by the 4th of January, 2018.
