Applicants shortlisted for interview will be sent an email invitation to attend. And will separately receive information on their interview time (40-45 minutes duration) once they have confirmed attendance.

Applicants are expected to do a 5-minute timed pre-prepared presentation on a piece of research they have previously been involved with/are currently working on as part of the interview. (This presentation must not be on the research project that the applicant has applied for.)

Multiple panels will be interviewing simultaneously. All interviews will be conducted over the same days via Zoom. The MRC LID administration team will contact applicants with the definitive outcome as soon as possible after decisions have been reached.

2024-25 MRC LID Studentship interviews will be held over the week commencing Monday 18 March 2024. The actual interview date/s will be confirmed with applicants shortlisted for interview.
