In 2010 Hughes Hall launched the 125th Anniversary Appeal to raise £1.5 million for the Scholarship Fund, and has now raised over 80% of this target. We are enormously grateful to all our benefactors for their generosity. This enables us to steadily increase our funding to students, often in joint awards with Cambridge University and other bodies.
Two Hughes Hall PhD Scholarships are awarded each year for full-time PhD study, in conjunction with the University of Cambridge. These cover both maintenance and fees for all three fee-paying years. Maintenance will be paid monthly by Hughes Hall at the university’s published rate, and fees via a Vice-Chancellor’s Award for a Home/EU student or a Cambridge International Scholarship for an Overseas student. Applicants must specify Hughes Hall as their first choice college in their university application.
Hughes Hall also offers several scholarships of £2,500 per year, kindly provided by benefactors. These will normally be awarded to current or former Hughes Hall students applying for a higher, full-time course. Applicants must specify Hughes Hall as their first or second choice college in their university application.

Modern genomics promises not only to help uncover the molecular basis of disease, but also to have a major impact on health care through translation of advances in techniques, computation and knowledge into clinical trials and clinical practice. Quantitative analysis is at the heart of this goal, and there is a pressing requirement for researchers with thorough mathematical and statistical expertise, in addition to training in medical genetics and informatics.
This PhD programme has been established as a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. The programme will provide the opportunity to work at the interface between the mathematical and computational sciences, and genome-scale and translational medical research.
Who are we looking for?
Successful applicants will have strong mathematical, statistical and computational skills, and may include exceptional biologists. They will develop quantitative techniques and theoretical approaches and apply them to practical problems in both translational and basic biomedical research.
Applications and referees’ referees’ reports must be received by 17.00 Monday 3 October 2016 (BST). Incomplete applications will NOT be accepted. Please make sure that your application and your referees’ referees’ reports reach us before the closing date.
Successful candidates will enter into their Fellowships on 1 October 2017 or such earlier date as may be agreed with the College and will vacate them on 30 September 2020 or three years after the commencement of the Fellowship if earlier. Tenure will normally be extended for a fourth year following application to the College Council.
The annual salary of Fellows who are not full-time students working for a degree or other qualification is at present on the scale £26,537 to £28,982, and Fellows are permitted to receive additional remuneration for up to six hours’ College or University teaching a week. Fellows who are full-time students will receive a reduced salary until completion of their courses. The salary for a Fellow who has other remunerations (other than that for up to six hours of College or University teaching) will be reduced by the total amount of this remuneration
Fellows may apply for grants to assist with the cost of their research, including obtaining academic material, travel expenses and the cost of extended periods of research if based outside Cambridge. Conference grants and book allowances are also available.
Office accommodation is provided for Fellows who do not live in College. Fellows wishing to reside with a partner/family will be eligible for a housing allowance. Fellows wishing to live in College are provided with residential accommodation with charges for services and supplies. Fellows are entitled to a maximum of 90 free lunches/dinners in each quarter of a year.

NIHR Blood Transfusion Research Unit in Donor Health and Genomics University of Cambridge
A PhD studentship in Biostatistics/Applied Statistics is available in a new interdisciplinary research programme in population health and genomics. The studentship will focus on developing stratified approaches to recommending the intervals at which particular groups of blood donors should be able to give blood. The project will be based on the INTERVAL study, a major randomized trial in which 50,000 male and female blood donors in the UK are randomized to give blood at, or more frequently than, the standard intervals (8 and 10 weeks vs the standard 12-weeks for men, and 12 and 14 weeks vs the standard 16-weeks for women). The outcomes in the trial are the amount of blood collected over the two years of the trial, the number of deferrals (temporary rejection of a donor due to low haemoglobin), quality of life and adverse events. In addition to the overall comparison of randomised groups, interest centres on whether different inter-donation intervals should be recommended for people with different characteristics (e.g. by age, weight, blood biomarkers, or genetic characteristics).
It is envisaged this studentship will involve:
delineating which donors benefit most based on single and multiple baseline characteristics;
developing statistical methodology for model selection and data reduction techniques;
examining methods for internal and/or external validation of such stratified groupings;
incorporating complex genetic information into stratification schemes;
comparing simple and complex stratification schemes both in terms of their overall efficiency in increasing benefit/decreasing harm, and in terms of their potential for practical implementation.
The research project would be suitable for a student wishing to develop skills in statistical methodology or applied statistics. Findings from the study will have major implications for blood donation policies in the UK and internationally. Eligible students will have obtained a Masters or equivalent in a related field (eg, medical statistics) and will have an excellent first degree (2:1 or higher). Exceptional students without a Masters may also be considered.
