Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute 4-year PhD Studentships Registered at the University of Cambridge

The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is a world leading genomics institute, and our programmes are at the forefront of experimental and computational genome research. These research programmes include investigation of human genetic variation in health, cancer and other diseases, experimental genetic analysis of gene function in a variety of model organisms, biological studies of bacterial, viral and parasitic human pathogens, and computational interpretation of genomic data.

Progress in many areas of biology is becoming increasingly dependent on genomics, and our programme specifically aims to equip students with both experimental and informatics skills, maximising their competitiveness for future opportunities. Our graduate training programme is well established and has substantial support from the Wellcome Trust. Furthermore, the research infrastructure resources available at the Sanger Institute are outstanding.

We welcome applications from students who wish to join this exciting phase of our research as we utilise genomics to deliver key insights into human health and disease
