PhD Studentships



Department of Bioengineering



Imperial College is ranked among the top five universities in the world
(Times Higher Education Awards, 2007). The Department of Bioengineering
at Imperial conducts world-leading research and was awarded a 5* rating
in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise.



We have two BBSRC-funded studentships (one standard and one CASE) as
well as other project-specific research council studentships and
possibly additional department-funded studentships, available to start
in October 2008. The BBSRC CASE studentship will be industry supported.



Eligibility/Duration

BBSRC studentships are open to UK and EU candidates, who have been
ordinarily resident in the UK for at least 3 years and will cover full
fees and stipend for 4 years. The same eligibility criteria will apply
to project specific studentships but the duration may vary depending on
the source of funding. Departmental studentships are open to UK
candidates and EU nationals and cover fees and stipend for 3 years.



Candidates for all studentships should have, or expect to obtain, at
least a good 2.1 in a relevant first degree (or equivalent).



Topics

Research in the Department is highly interdisciplinary and is best
reflected in terms of the following themes:

* Biomechanics/Physiological mechanics

* Biomedical systems

* Neurotechnology


Candidates should visit the Bioengineering Department website at:
http://www.imperial.ac.uk/bioengineering
to identify topics of
interest within these themes and potential supervisors.



For the BBSRC studentships the topic needs to be within the remit of the
BBSRC and preferably within areas that the BBSRC is promoting. Please
see: http://www.bbsrc.ac.uk/science/index.html
for further information.



Applicants should contact their potential supervisor before completing
their application, to discuss putting a case forward. Relevant email
addresses can be found on the Departmental website.



The College postgraduate prospectus, entry requirements and application
form are available online at www.imperial.ac.uk/pgprospectus
. For assistance with
application details please contact Kate Hobson
(k.hobson@imperial.ac.uk).



Deadline for applications: 30 April 2008
