PhD at Imperial College

Students interested in joining the group for their PhD are encouraged to reach out to discuss potential projects. Every year, a number of interesting PhD projects are available. A PhD may be co-supervised by a collaborator at Imperial or outside. Our group is generally interested in the immunological mechanisms underlying human disease with a particular focus in autoimmune and infectious diseases. To get an idea of the type of research done in the group, perusing through the group's publications is a good idea.

We strongly encourage students to get in touch as early as possible (e.g. a year ahead of the envisaged starting date) to discuss potential PhD scholarship and grant applications (for instance through the MS Society or Diabetes UK PhD scholarships schemes). Applications for PhD scholarship schemes have annual deadlines from November to January for start in the following Autumn.

Funded PhD opportunities are available via a number of funding schemes including:

There are also a number of citizenship specific scholarships to consider such as:

A number of other studentships available to international students to study at Imperial are listed here.

Enquiries from prospective PhD students with the potential to obtain independent funding are welcomed at any time.
