The MRC Human Genetics Unit offers a competitive 4 year PhD programme built around a set of core principles

  • excellent molecular and computational skills
  • quantitative and analytical expertise and
  • interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary or translational experience

In addition to our own PhD programme, additional postgraduate opportunities are available due to us being part of the MRC Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine, embedded within the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. The Institute provides an outstanding training environment, overseen by a well-established IGMM Graduate School, with state of the art facilities and a variety of opportunities for postgraduate research study.

There is a great sense of community within the IGMM, with over a hundred postgraduate students and a thriving postgraduate society (POGs) which runs career talks, social events and an annual scientific retreat.
