(for full information see here: https://crukcambridgecentre.org.uk/content/cruk-international-alliance-cancer-early-detection-aced)

The Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre Early Detection Programme based at the University of Cambridge, is a partner in the CRUK International Alliance for Cancer Early Detection (ACED); a unique, science-led £40M investment that will create new trans-Atlantic collaborations and ideas that will transform the field. ACED funding is available for non-clinical PhD students to carry out cancer-related research in the Departments of Public Health and Primary Care (DPHPC), Social Anthropology or History and Philosophy of Science.

The 4-year funding can be applied to a 1-year MPhil + 3 years PhD, with the MPhil being one of the existing programmes in the DPHPC (EpidemiologyPublic Health or Primary Care Research) in Social Anthropology or History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine. Students applying who already have an equivalent degree or training could start the PhD directly without doing an MPhil.

Three fully-funded PhD studentships are available for applicants, to commence in October 2020. Support includes a stipend at £19,000 per annum, research costs and fees at home/EU rates. The closing date for applications is 15th November 2019
