The Arthritis Research Campaign (ARC) wish to award a number of prestigious Ph.D. Studentships in 2001 to encourage outstanding young science graduates to enter a research career in rheumatology.

Studentships will be awarded to university departments by open competition and will be tenable for three years starting in October 2001. The awards will provide a generous incremental tax-free stipend, starting at £13,851 in London or £11,708 outside London, plus UK tuition fees and £5,000 a year towards research expenses.

University departments are invited to submit proposals for research projects that have clear relevance to the aims of the ARC and which will provide a broad research training in a multidisciplinary environment.
