Summary

The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute occasionally takes on MPhil students providing they have their own funding. Before applying for this course, applicants must have the support of a faculty member at the Institute. To obtain support from a faculty member, students should contact them directly. For information on our faculty members’ research interests, please visit the Science Groups page and the Faculty page on the Sanger Institute website.

This is a one-year full-time research MPhil. Assessment is by submission of a thesis and an oral examination. Students start in October, with submission of the thesis by the end of August.

The MPhil aims to provide research opportunities in the field of genomic science that reflect the unique nature of Sanger Institute science, with an emphasis on large-scale, high-throughput approaches and the development of a blend of wet-lab and computational skills. The Institute also aims to provide students with general research and transferable skills training in addition to training in their specific research area.

Applicants will generally have a bioscience background, but applicants with a computational or mathematical background can also apply.
