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:
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 at imperial.ac.uk).

Deadline for applications: 30 April 2008
