Postgraduate research studentships

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences offer postgraduate research studentships to support PhD students each year.

The postgraduate research studentships listed on this page are typically to start in late September and provide funding for up to 3 years of PhD study, covering tuition fees and a maintenance stipend, normally at the Research Councils UK rate. This list includes our QMUL Principal’s Postgraduate Research Studentships. Some of the funding available is limited to UK/EU students.
