        MRes/PhD studentships in Biomedical Research (Biomedicine and
                      Bioengineering in Osteoarthritis)

                                 Payment of Home/EU tuition fees plus
                            stipend of at least £17,500 per annum for 4 years

Applications are invited for five 4-year MRes/PhD studentships in the Centre for the Pathology of
Osteoarthritis, Departments of Medicine and Bioengineering, Imperial College London at the Hammersmith
and South Kensington Campuses.

The Centre is a “Cross-Faculty” Centre housed by the Departments of Medicine and Bioengineering in the
Faculties of Medicine and Engineering, with collaborative opportunities with various Departments across
both Faculties and in the Faculty of Natural Sciences.

The MRes in Biomedical Research (Biomedicine and Bioengineering in Osteoarthritis) comprises a 12
month MRes course in the first year of a four year MRes/PhD programme offered by the Centre for the
Pathology of Osteoarthritis. The emphasis is on cross-disciplinary approaches to problem-solving, with the
ultimate goal of developing new understanding of osteoarthritis pathogenesis and progression. Like the
other MRes streams, this course exposes students to the latest developments in the field through two
laboratory research projects of 5 months duration, one in the Department of Bioengineering and one in the
Department of Medicine, supplemented by a programme of weekly lectures and journal clubs. The MRes
provides a focus towards new and emerging approaches to investigate the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis in
the fields of Medicine, Bioengineering, Imaging, Chemistry and Metabanomics.

The Biomedicine and Bioengineering in Osteoarthritis syllabus is aligned within the MRes in Biomedical
Research core course, which provides teaching in more general areas including statistics as well as career
and transferable skills support. After successful completion of the MRes, all students commence a 3-year
PhD with research groups in the Centre for Pathology of Osteoarthritis.

(NOTE: The MRes in Biomedical Research consists of several MRes streams including Biomedicine and
Bioengineering in Osteoarthritis: other streams are not necessarily linked to a specific PhD research programme
unless the student has arranged independent funding)

Biomedicine and Bioengineering in Osteoarthritis Studentships are open to home/EU applicants
only. Payment of home/EU fees and an annual stipend of approximately £17,500 are included.
Applicants must have a first or upper second class degree from a UK University or the overseas
equivalent in a relevant area. Applicants must also meet Imperial College’s Englislh language
requirements – further details can be found at
