Ralph Lewin - F E Fritsch Prize Studentship

The Ralph Lewin - F E Fritsch Prize Studentship in the field of Phycology is available to UK and EU citizens. The Department of Plant Sciences, in conjunction with Downing College, is offering a range of projects in the field of phycology. Candidates are encouraged to review the projects on the Department's website and to contact potential supervisors directly for further details.

The studentship is typically tenable for up to three years and includes the University Composition Fee, a contribution towards research expenses and a living allowance at the standard UK Research Council Doctoral stipend levels (£15,009 2019/20 rate). The award is conditional upon the recipient becoming a member of Downing College for the duration of the studentship and being registered for a PhD at the University of Cambridge.

Applicants are automatically considered when applying for postgraduate study by the University's Graduate Funding Competition deadline. Applicants need to select Downing College as their first choice College when making an application.

We are also happy to devise a project with you if you have suitable research interests that we share in phycology. Please contact a prospective supervisor to develop a project proposal before applying.
