Call for Final Honour School Research Projects for Pre-clinical Medicine students and Biomedical Sciences students 2017-18

The Course Directors for Pre-clinical Medicine and Biomedical Sciences are seeking around 180 research projects for candidates of the Final Honour Schools of Medical Sciences, Cell & Systems Biology and Neuroscience.

Typically research projects begin in May and data gathering and/or data analysis should occupy the student for a total of approximately 8 full weeks, or an equivalent period (e.g. 16 half-time weeks). Timing can be agreed between supervisors and students, and students have a complete academic year to complete and write-up their projects, but students will be fairly heavily occupied with lectures, seminars and tutorial teaching from October onwards. NEW for 2017: a small amount of Advanced Option lectures and seminars will be delivered in Trinity Term of Year 2, but students will still have the large majority of their time free to work on their research projects.

For each student supervised, the supervisor’s department will be allocated a proportion of the T-JRAM associated with Year 2 of the student’s course (usually a figure of c.£2000). Supervisors will also be able to claim for the equivalent of 8 hours of tutorial teaching (£207.18 for 2016-17) from the student’s college.

Supervisors can advertise a project in the central allocations process or make a private arrangement with a student.

In order to help you advertise your project in the central allocation scheme we would need to receive your submissions by Monday 9 January 2017 (0th week, Hilary Term).

If you would be interested in offering a project please see for further details or e-mail
