Full Funding for PhD Students Commencing 2016/17

The Faculty of Law of the University of Cambridge is offering two studentships for new PhD students commencing full-time doctoral research in 2016/17. The studentships are available to Home UK/EU and overseas students, and are each renewable for a further 2 years subject to satisfactory academic progress. The value of a studentship will be the full annual University Composition Fee together with an annual maintenance award of £12,750.

Any topic concerning legal or policy aspects of medicine and life sciences can be considered for the studentships. Some potential areas of enquiry (this is not an exhaustive list) include:

  • intellectual property protection for second medical use
  • uses of big data/predictive algorithms in medical care or research
  • pharmaceutical law, innovation and pricing
  • legal or regulatory issues in personalised drugs and diagnostics
  • loss of chance harms and causation in preventative medicine
  • medicine, health data, and the "internet of things"
  • proportionality arguments in healthcare law
  • uses of genomic technologies in health systems
  • the relationship between the state and private sector in the provision of healthcare (e.g. personalised medicine)
  • the role of data protection law in medical governance

A prior degree in law is required.

Candidates wishing to be considered for this studentship should complete the application form and send it directly to phdadmissions@law.cam.ac.uk by the closing date of December 2, 2015. They should also apply for admission by the same deadline – see http://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/.
