Science for Health
The Crick PhD Programme will equip you with all the skills you need to successfully complete your studies through an extensive range of seminars, workshops and lectures. We also provide excellent research support facilities and expertise so that you can concentrate on research.
In 2016, staff and students from the MRC-NIMR and the CRUK London Research Institute (LRI) will move into the Francis Crick Institute’s new, state-of the-art facilities, opposite the St Pancras Eurostar terminal in central London.
The Francis Crick Institute is a consortium of six of the UK's most successful scientific and academic organisations - the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK (CRUK), the Wellcome Trust, Imperial College London, King's College London and University College London (UCL). The Crick will conduct ground-breaking and interdisciplinary medical research to understand why disease develops and find new ways to prevent and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative disorders.
Students who join the 2015 Crick PhD Programme will start their PhDs at the NIMR or LRI in September 2015 and will register at one of the Crick partner Universities (Imperial College London, King’s College London or University College London). They will transfer into the Crick with their research groups in early 2016.
Students interested in applying for a PhD position on the Crick PhD Programme with supervisors currently based at the NIMR should apply via this website. Students interested in applying for a position with supervisors currently based at the LRI should apply here. Students can apply via both routes if they are interested in supervisors at both Institutes.
