PhD Research Scholarship in Traditional Asian medicine Field at University of Kent 2020

The University of Kent in the United Kingdom announced the Global Challenges Doctoral Centre (GCDC) scholarship for new postgraduate research applicants. 

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Candidates will be expected to have met the entry requirements for a PhD in Biosciences: A minimum 2.1 honors degree in Biology, Biomedicine or equivalent. A Master's degree or the equivalent from an internationally recognized institution is desirable. Research experience in whole-organism biology, molecular biology and or biochemistry is also desirable.
  • This project is highly collaborative, and the researcher will work together with the PIs and collaborating partners within the university and in Thailand to make it a success. The researcher will be responsible (together with the PIs) for the successful running of the project. This will require motivation, a high level of organization, collaboration skills and a certain level of independence.

  • The University of Kent requires all non-native speakers of English to reach a minimum standard of proficiency in written and spoken English before beginning a postgraduate degree.

The scholarship call is open to applicants from all nationalities. Applicants paying overseas fees can still apply: four GCDC scholarships will be offered at the international rate and some academic schools may be able to support other applicants financially beyond the UKRI level.
