The Department's buildings are currently open for wet laboratory work only. We have carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and have introduced a number of new measures to ensure the safety of our staff, including reduced building occupancy, strict social distancing, 'family'-based working, and increased cleaning and hygiene regimes. All staff who can work remotely will do so for the foreseeable future. Please continue to contact us by email until further notice.

Studentships are available for student fees and (estimated) maintenance costs. Please see the links for information on funding and funding opportunities.

If you are a non-UK citizen, your home country might have funding opportunities for study at Cambridge, so you should enquire with your home governmental and institutional contacts.

The FindAPhD website and the Department's studentships page will also provide information on available funded positions in the Department.
