Course summary

The aim of the PhD Programme in Immunity and Infection is to provide students with the training, cutting-edge skills and broad academic insight and expertise to bring novel and innovative approaches to the study of immune and infectious disorders. The 2019 opening of The Cambridge Institute of Therapeutic Immunology and Infectious Disease (CITIID) provides a new and unique opportunity for graduate student training in immunity and infection - CITIID combines clinical and scientific expertise with state-of-the-art flow cytometry, proteomic, imaging and CL3 facilities.

The Programme is offering three fully funded studentships at the Home fee rate, for projects commencing in October 2021. International students may apply to the Programme, but will need to obtain funding and should therefore also apply to the University’s funding competition, by the relevant deadline. In addition to excellent research facilities, students will have access to a wide variety of training and researcher development activities, many of which are offered through the Postgraduate School of Life Sciences and the wider University.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of their PhD, students should: have a thorough knowledge of the literature and a comprehensive understanding of scientific methods and techniques applicable to their own research; be able to demonstrate originality in the application of knowledge, together with a practical understanding of how research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge in their field; have self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems; be able to act autonomously in the planning and implementation of research; and have gained oral presentation and scientific writing skills.
