How to Apply
MRC LID is delighted to receive a new MRC Doctoral Training Partnership Award, which continues our highly successful DTP. The new DTP award provides 8-9 PhD studentships per year, funded by MRC, LSHTM & SGUL. Each award will be linked to at least one of the DTP’s themes, which are global health, health data science, infectious disease and translational and implementation research.
In preparing our DTP bid submission we recognised the importance of tackling systemic barriers experienced by students in progressing to postgraduate research degree programmes and of taking a proactive approach to EDI. We have made widening participation and cultivating a supportive, inclusive, and diverse community of future scientific leaders core aspects of our approach to developing the DTP. This includes a ring-fenced scheme for UK students from ethnic minority backgrounds.
Please note: the application process for the DTP is different to the standard admissions process at either partner institution. Further details will be shared here in due course.
Information about how to apply will be updated to reflect the new award, and published here in late October/early November 2021 at the latest (for the 2022-23 recruitment cycle).
