EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine – Innovation in Medical and Biological Engineering

Project description

This is an exciting opportunity to undertake a 4 year funded integrated PhD and MSc in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine – Innovation in Medical and Biological Engineering.

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine - Innovation in Medical and Biological Engineering will provide postgraduate research and training for 50 students, to research, develop and deliver regenerative therapies and devices, which can repair or replace diseased tissues and restore normal tissue function.

The CDT TERM iMBE will comprise of a blended programme of specialised subject modules, along with professional development and skills training, integrated with research over two years. These will form an integrated MSc in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine – Innovation in Medical and Biological Engineering.

You will study 180 taught credits over the two years with the majority studied in year 1, allowing a phased increase to full time research towards the end of year 2.

In line with our ethos of student choice, you will not be pre-assigned to research projects on enrolment into the programme. You will be encouraged to undertake subject specific training through both laboratory placements and taught modules before you choose a project. Project choices will be made at the end of semester 2 in year 1. Research will commence in Semester 3 of year 1 and initially comprise a full literature review, induction and training in research laboratories before experimental and/or computational research commences.

For more information please contact Cheryl Harris, Centre Manager CDTTERM (regenmed@leeds.ac.uk).

Entry requirements

A degree equivalent to a UK upper second class honours (2:1), or higher, in a physical science or engineering.

If English is not the applicant’s first language, they must provide evidence that you meet the University’s minimum English Language requirements.

How to apply

We welcome scholarship applications from all suitably-qualified candidates, but UK black and minority ethnic (BME) researchers are currently under-represented in our Postgraduate Research community, and we would therefore particularly encourage applications from UK BME candidates. All scholarships will be awarded on the basis of merit.
