International PhD Programme

Applications for October 2020 entry are now open


LMB Phd logoEvery year the LMB International PhD Programme offers 20-30 new graduate students from the UK and all over the world the opportunity to engage in cutting-edge research.

At the LMB, we aim to train the scientific leaders of the future: we seek the best students, give them rewarding and challenging research projects and provide a supportive environment with access to world-leading experts and state-of-the-art facilities.

LMB postgraduate students are registered for their PhD with the Graduate School of Life Sciences at the University of Cambridge – leading to a University of Cambridge PhD degree. Students registered with the University also become a member of one of the University’s colleges. This relationship, between the LMB and the University of Cambridge, gives our postgraduate students membership of two of the world’s leading research institutions.

To apply you will need to complete an application via the University of Cambridge Applicant Portal.

Before that you should browse the LMB research pages, familiarise yourself with the research projects on offer and consults our FAQs and useful links pages.
