If you’re interested in a PhD in the CVR please contact us. We can host PhD studentships either for self-funded projects or through the various funding schemes available at the University of Glasgow: MVLS DTP, MVLS DTP in Precision Medicine or Wellcome Trust PhD Programme (open to international applicants). The CVR also has its own MRC-funded PhD programme and we welcome applications from potential students interested in dry/computer-based projects.
