Applying to do your PhD at the Gurdon Institute

Prospective PhD students are advised to apply to the appropriate course/Department towards the end of the calendar year preceding the October in which they hope to start, well before the funding deadlines in early December.

We welcome enquiries from prospective graduate students. We have a thriving population of graduates who contribute greatly to both the stimulating research environment and the life of the Institute as a whole. Graduates also become members of the University biological or medical sciences department to which their group leader is affiliated.

Graduate studentships are supported from various public and private sources. The Wellcome Trust finances a number of schemes in the University, including one in Developmental Mechanisms and one in stem cells. The CRUK Cambridge Centre also provides studentships.  Current calls are listed above.

Most studentships are administered through Departments where our group leaders are affiliated, even though their labs are entirely within the Gurdon Institute. Prospective students must quote the correct Department on their application form.

Applicants can at the same write to the group leader they wish to join (get in touch by email at contact@gurdon.cam.ac.uk) with their CV and names of 2-3 referees. (Privacy and Data Protection policy)

Further information on the application process, with course directories and funding database, can be found on the University's Graduate Admissions website.

Studying development to understand disease

The Gurdon Institute is funded by Wellcome and Cancer Research UK to study the biology of development, and how normal growth and maintenance go wrong in cancer and other diseases.
