BHF-funded PhD in Cardiovascular Biomedicine - places available for engineers and computer scientists

The Institute of Cardiovascular Science (ICS) are offering up to four PhD studentships in Cardiovascular Biomedicine, funded by the British Heart Foundation (BHF). Applications from engineers and computer scientists are particularly encouraged.

  • UCL is a world-class centre of excellence in cardiovascular research and medicine. Over 400 cardiovascular scientists and cardiologists undertake basic, clinical and population-based research to improve our understanding of disease and provide new diagnostics, therapies and preventative strategies.

    Up to four BHF studentships will be available to work in any area of cardiovascular biomedicine. Research areas include:

    • Fundamental Biology and Discovery Science
    • Therapeutic and Diagnostic Innovation
    • Population Science and Experimental Medicine
    • Data Science and Health Informatics

    The first year of this course provides postgraduate level tuition in relevant topics, training in transferable research skills, opportunities to visit research units and two or three 3 month-long projects, which will provide a basis select a doctoral project and supervisors.

    This is an exciting opportunity to spend one year expanding your scientific skills and experience on three projects with different Institute scientists, from a wide range of research areas before choosing what you want to specialise in for the remaining three years on the programme.
