Non-Clinical MRes/PhD Studentships in Musculoskeletal Ageing
These fully-funded studentships commence in September 2013. They provide funding for fees and stipend at the Research Council UK rate and are subject to Research Council eligibility requirements.
Eligibility and other criteria
The MRC - Arthritis Research UK Centre for Integrated research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) is a collaboration between the Universities of Liverpool, Newcastle and Sheffield. The aim of the centre is to understand the processes and effects of ageing in tissues of the musculoskeletal system leading to osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and muscle weakness, how ageing contributes to disease and how this can be treated or prevented.
As part of the new Centre for Integrated research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) up to 12 full-funded non-clinical 4-year MRes/PhD studentships will be available for entry from September 2013.
This unique programme, funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) and Arthritis Research UK, offers students multidisciplinary training in the processes and effects of ageing in the whole musculoskeletal system, and how these processes may be treated or prevented.
Students on this 4-year programme will be based in one of the three sites, Liverpool, Sheffield, or Newcastle, but all projects will be collaborative between the three institutions. Students will spend at least 3 months in the laboratory of one or more of the collaborating partners. The training has a strong intersectorial component, each student having access to an industrial mentor.
Students should have home or EU student status: studentships for UK applicants comprise tuition fees, research support costs and a tax-free stipend at the Research Council rate EU applicants may be eligible for a full award if they have been ordinarily resident in the UK for 3 years preceding the date of application.
Candidates should or expect to hold a first or upper second class honours degree in Biological Sciences or an equivalent degree.
