Externally/Self-funded PhD Studentships.

The Earlham Institute welcomes applications from postgraduate students who have, or hope to gain, external scholarships or who wish to self-fund their studies.

Become a PhD student.

The Earlham Institute (EI) was established in 2009 to bring together expertise in biosciences, biotechnology, bioinformatics and high performance computing to answer ambitious biological questions. Our research programmes take data-driven approaches to decoding living systems and understanding their complex functions, diversity and how they interact with their environments. Though still a young institute, we have already gained a reputation for training multidisciplinary scientists, equipped with diverse skills sought after across academia and industry.
