MeDe Innovation PhD secondment scheme 2018 now open

February 12, 2018

MeDe Innovation is providing funding for PhD students from any of our five partner Universities to undertake external placements which will help them to deliver effective impact in MeDe Innovation key research challenges.

Placements are expected to broaden researcher experience in a way that will impact on student benefit, e.g. through the acquisition of new high level skills, new knowledge, access to facilities, developing new collaborations (or progressing existing ones), gaining insight into clinical, industrial or other needs, or experiencing a new but relevant environment.

Placements can be local, national or international, in university, industry, clinical or other relevant settings and can be anything from 1 week to around 2 months in duration.

Applications are expected for awards up to around £1,500 (up to £2500 for international placements).


Who can apply?

PhD students from one of the five MeDe Innovation academic centres.


•Closing date for applications, 23rd March 2018

•Successful applicants will be notified by 1st April 2018.
