Other DPhil Programmes
Details of other postgraduate programmes can be found on the Medical Sciences Graduate School website.
There are several other DPhil programmes that enable you to perform your research with supervisors in the Department of Biochemistry
DPhil in Biochemistry (OU/TSRI) (or Skaggs-Oxford Programme)
The Skaggs-Oxford programme is a joint five-year course of study in Biology, Chemistry, or Chemical Biology at the Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) in La Jolla, California, and Biochemistry or Chemical Biology at the University of Oxford. It leads to the award of a DPhil/PhD degree jointly by the University of Oxford and The Scripps Research Institute. Further information on this programme, and how to apply, can be found on the Medical Sciences Graduate School website and The Scripps Research Institute website. Please note that the application deadline for this programme is December 1.
Structured DPhil Programmes
These programmes, some of which are hosted by the Medical Sciences Doctoral Training Centre, have a first year of taught courses and rotation through two or more supervisors' laboratories before the student begins their main research project in year 2. Some group leaders in this Department can supervise students on the following programmes:
- Chromosome and Developmetal Biology (Wellcome Trust)
- Cellular and Structural Biology (Wellcome Trust)
- Infection, Immunity and Translational Medicine (Wellcome Trust)
- Neuroscience (Wellcome Trust)
- Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience DTP (BBSRC)
- Systems Approaches to Biomedical Science CDT (EPSRC and MRC)
- Integrative Systems Biology
- Life Sciences Interface DTC
- Biomedical Imaging (EPSRC and MRC)
- Synthetic Biology (EPSRC and BBSRC)
The NIH-Oxford-Cambridge Scholars Programme is for students from the United States to undertake collaborative four-year DPhil training based in both Oxford and the intramural campus of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) at Bethesda (Maryland, USA).
Wellcome Trust and National Institutes of Health four year PhD studentships provide the same opportunity for students from the UK, EU, Iceland, and Norway.
