Training the next generation of 3Rs-minded researchers.
PhD studentships scheme: Call for applications
The NC3Rs PhD studentship scheme addresses the need to embed the 3Rs principles (replacement, reduction and refinement) in the training of early-career scientists from a broad range of research backgrounds.
We are now inviting applications for the next round, for which 10 awards will be available.
Applications are invited that will attract and inspire the UK's top graduates, and provide excellent scientific training as well as a solid introduction to the 3Rs principles. Awards are for three years at a flat rate of £30,000 per annum.
Multidisciplinary applications and those involving an industry collaborator are particularly encouraged.
We welcome applications from leading UK researchers with a minimum of five years postdoctoral experience. The proposal must be of excellent scientific quality with a measurable 3Rs impact.
