Harwell Studentships

Harwell Studentships

We encourage applications for our partner studentships with research organisation at the Oxford Harwell Campus (Diamond Light Source, ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, STFC Central Laser Facility, the Research Complex at Harwell and the Rosalind Franklin Institute), which support research undertaken under the joint supervision of researchers based at Harwell and the University of Oxford or Oxford Brookes University. These studentships may be of particular interest to students with interests in areas such as bioimaging, structural biology, spectroscopy, biophysics, data science and molecular dynamics.

Students who are awarded Harwell studentships will have the opportunity to participate fully in the four-year training programme provided by the DTP, and will have the opportunity to undertake exploratory projects in two research groups before committing to a specific three-year research project, which will be undertaken under the joint supervision of researchers at the Oxford Harwell Campus and the University of Oxford or Oxford Brookes University. Students also undertake a 12-week professional internship to gain direct experience of the areas of work.

Candidates interested in working with Harwell research organisations are encouraged to apply for general entry to the Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience DTP and to state in their application that they wish to be considered for a Harwell studentship. Their personal statement should include an explanation of their interest in working with one or more Harwell research organisations
