Key dates

Applicants are required to apply directly to the Wellcome Sanger Institute by following the instructions in the "How to apply" section of the 4-year PhD Programme page on the Wellcome Sanger Institute’s website by Thursday 2nd December 2021 (09:00 GMT).

The reference submission deadline is Thursday 9th December 2021 (09.00 GMT).

Shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend interviews on Monday 24th January 2022. Due to the current pandemic, these will take place via videoconference rather than in person. If shortlisted candidates are unavailable on the 24th January, they can be interviewed via a series of videoconference interviews during the preceding two weeks.

Successful candidates are then required to apply for admission to the University of Cambridge via the Applicant Portal.

If applicants have not heard from us by Monday 10th January 2022, they should assume that they have not been shortlisted for interview.

Interview candidates will know whether they have been made an offer by the end of January 2022.
