Eligibility: Applications are welcome from academic staff working in the areas of Life and Health Sciences.
The Medical Research Council 4-year programme provides integrated research training in Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science. The programme consists of three rotation projects followed by a 3-year PhD project.
ISSF has funded start-up packages (equipment, PhD studentships, laboratory consumables and relocation costs) for the recruitment of outstanding biomedical researchers. These new recruits work across cell and molecular biology, bacteriology, immunology, parasitology and drug discovery.
The BBSRC East of Scotland Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership provides training for postgraduates with diverse background (including biosciences, physical sciences, mathematics) to address biological questions using a range of technologies. This 4-year programme consists of a PhD project supplemented by Biosciences and Generic Skills Training, including a 3-month professional internship outside of academia.
1. Academic Staff
ISSF will support the careers of investigators by establishing Life and Health Sciences Flexible Dependent Care Grants for academics. The aim is to encourage the professional development of academics working in Life and Health Sciences who have primary carer responsibilities.
Funds are available to:
The ISSF has supported our strategy to have innovative core facilities in key research areas and to develop computational and informatics resources that underpin our WT funded research.
The MRC PPU offers Prize Studentships in the areas of signal transduction and DNA repair, with strong emphasis on analysis of protein phosphorylation and ubiquitylation and on links with human disease. The Unit has a major interest in drug discovery, bolstered by the award-winning Division of Signal Transduction therapy (DSTT) which was created by the MRC PPU and which is funded by six major pharmaceutical companies. Two types of PhD are offered: a 3.5 yr studentship in one lab only, or a 4yr studentship which involves rotation projects in two separate labs followed by a 3.5 year PhD project in one of them.
