Course summary

About the course

The Chemistry in Cells programme provides bespoke training for outstanding graduates from a physical/chemical- sciences background, who want to develop and apply quantitative chemical and physical science techniques to contemporary questions in biomedical science.

The course supports four years of DPhil study. The first term of the programme will provide training in research and transferable skills. This will include both taught and practical courses, and the opportunity to meet prospective supervisors and career mentors. Following a 16-week Springboard Phase, students will undertake their full DPhil project for approximately 3.5 years.

Assessment

All students will be initially admitted to the status of Probationer Research Student (PRS). Within a maximum of six terms as a PRS student you will be expected to apply for transfer of status from Probationer Research Student to DPhil status.

A successful transfer of status from PRS to DPhil status will require the submission of a report on progress to date on research and future plans. Students who are successful at transfer will also be expected to apply for and gain confirmation of DPhil status within ten terms of admission, to show that your work continues to be on track.

Both milestones normally involve an interview with two assessors (other than your supervisor) and therefore provide important experience for the final oral examination.

Graduate destinations

This is a new course and there are no alumni yet; graduate destinations will be posted as data become available. However, throughout the course, students will have the opportunity to meet the Chemistry in Cells pool of career mentors with scientific backgrounds and diverse career paths. Our career mentors provide advice and guidance to our students as they explore and develop their career paths. There is flexible funding to support short-term postdoctoral activities undertaken directly after the DPhil is completed.
