Postgraduate study in the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre

We welcome enquiries to study with us. We provide a supportive and collaborative research environment, where we strive to improve quality of life and reduce inequalities in palliative care.

Please note we do not have specific funding available, as this is usually sought on a case-by-case basis.

MSc and elective opportunities

Dissertations or other research may be undertaken with us, if you have a relevant research interest. Please email either Professor Miriam Johnson or Professor Fliss Murtagh to enquire.

PhD

We have a number of students at the Wolfson Palliative Care Research Centre working towards their PhDs.

Funded PhD Training Fellowships/PhD studentships, when available, are listed on our funded opportunities page.

We also work with suitable students to support applications for national or regional PhD funding. This is highly competitive, so potential students will need to have a track record of interest or involvement in palliative care research already. Please email either Professor Miriam Johnson or Professor Fliss Murtagh to enquire further.

Integrated Academic Trainees

Please see our dedicated webpage about NIHR Academic Training Programme opportunities.
