We are keen to receive applications from candidates who wish to work with a specific member of staff on (or very closely aligned with) a named research project outlined by that member of staff. Applications from candidates with high quality research proposals on other research topics will also be considered. All candidates will need to submit a research proposal, approximately 1,500 words in length, as part on the application process. 

Details of research projects currently available.

The award includes the cost of tuition fees (Home/EU rate) and an annual stipend (£14,777 in 2018-19) for three years, subject to satisfactory progress. The scholarship holder will also have access to a research training support grant of up to £750 per annum.

The successful applicant will be asked, as part of the award, to make a contribution to departmental activities, e.g., teaching, research, citizenship or mentoring, equivalent to five hours per week during term time (some of the work however may occur outside term time).
