Studentships and Projects
Multiple routes to access funding (studentships) are available for the projects within Strubi. Details on the two major funding routes are below, however there are other funding routes that may be available to you. Informal inquiries can be made on each project page where you can discuss with the project supervisor more information about the project or get more information about the funding options available to you.
How To Apply
|The Wellcome Trust 4-year programme in Structural Biology is jointly run by the Division of Structural Biology and the Department of Biochemistry. As with all applications you will apply through the Oxford central graduate admissions portal. In applying to this programme, you do not need to specify a potential supervisor. If you are a UK or EU student then the Wellcome Trust will cover both fees and living expenses. If you are not then you will need to apply for additional funding to support your application. If you are awarded a Wellcome Trust studentship you will then receive funding for 4 years, with the first year spent on 2 half year rotations in laboratories of your choice. The information on how to apply are available on the website.
|The NDM prize studentships are available to all students without restriction of nationality. As with all applications you will apply through the Oxford central graduate admissions portal. In the application you will need to specify up to 3 supervisors and projects in which you are interested, in order of preference. These will be the name or names preferred by you from the list available on the NDM website. If you are awarded an NDM prize studentship you will then receive funding for 4 years to work with your chosen supervisor. The information on how to apply are available on the website.
The Keith Prout Crystallography Fund
The Keith Prout Crystallography Fund offers grants to graduate students and postdoctoral workers within five years of obtaining their PhD in order to promote work in crystallography. Travel grants are awarded up to £300 depending on the destination and cost, and awards are usually limited to £300 in any three year period.
Applications for conference travel support are normally conditional on the applicant submitting an abstract to the conference.
Other funding routes are available, however they are usually very specific to either project or country of origin. If you are interested in a specific project use the contact form at the bottom of the project information page to get more information from the supervisor about available funding routes.
