Four studentships are now available in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London to start in October 2010:

BBSRC/EPSRC Doctoral Training Studentships (2 available)
Studentships are open to UK and EU candidates who have been ordinarily resident* in the UK for at least three years prior to the start of the course. Studentships cover full fees and bursary for up to three years (EPSRC) or four years (BBSRC).

* Applicants must have been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences)

Departmental Studentships (2 available)
Studentships cover home/EU fees and bursary for three years and are open to UK and EU students (no residency requirement applies). Overseas candidates may also apply if they are able to supplement the home fees (i.e. pay the difference between home and overseas fees).
Candidates for all studentships should have, or expect to obtain, at least a good 2.1 in a relevant first degree (or equivalent).
Research Areas

The Department's research interests lie within the following broad themes.

Biological and medical imaging
Biomechanics and robotics
Biophysical and physiological modelling
Medical devices and informatics
Neuroscience and technology
Physiological fluid mechanics

Candidates should visit the academic staff page (http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/bioengineering/people/staff) and research pages (http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/bioengineering/research) of the Bioengineering website (http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/bioengineering/) to identify topics of interest and appropriate supervisors. Please contact the supervisor(s) directly, prior to application through the College online system, to devise or discuss potential projects. For doctoral training studentships the chosen project must fall within the remit of the relevant research council - please see www.bbsrc.ac.uk and www.epsrc.ac.uk for further details.

PLEASE NOTE: applicants who were not successful in the previous round of departmental studentships will not be considered unless they have been informed otherwise or there has been a significant change regarding their CV since submitting their application. In the latter case, please send brief details and any supplementary material to k.hobson@imperial.ac.uk.

Application deadline: 4 June 2010
