The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute is a world leading genomics institute, and our programmes are at the forefront of experimental and computational genome research. These research programmes include investigation of human genetic variation in health, cancer and other diseases, experimental genetic analysis of gene function in a variety of model organisms, biological studies of bacterial, viral and parasitic human pathogens, and computational interpretation of genomic data. Progress in many areas of biology is becoming increasingly dependent on genomics, and our programme specifically aims to equip students with both experimental and informatics skills, maximising their competitiveness for future opportunities. Our graduate training programme is well established and has substantial support from the Wellcome Trust. Furthermore, the research infrastructure resources available at the Sanger Institute are outstanding. At least ten highly competitive fully funded 4-year studentships (tuition fees and stipend) for UK and international students will be available from October 2013 across all our research areas. Application closing date 4th December 2012 For more details please visit http://www.sanger.ac.uk/workstudy/phd/ or follow us on twitter http://twitter.com/sangerinstjobs/.
