Anatomical Society Research Studentships 2021/22


The Anatomical Society offers a limited number of Research Studentships to be held in departments of anatomical sciences in the UK and Ireland. Applications are currently being invited from prospective supervisors for Research Studentships to commence in October 2022. The closing date for applications is midnight (GMT) Friday 20th August 2021.

For the third year, the Society is reserving a studentship for an early career investigator an ECI is a person with a lectureship or independent research fellowship who is within 12 years of being awarded a PhD, exclusive of career breaks and who has guaranteed employment for the duration of the studentship and who has not held an AS PhD Studentship before. The application will be judged according to different criteria than the regular studentship submissions with more emphasis on project design and training provided than on track record. The proposal will still have to meet the high standard expected.
