Up to 40 new Doctoral College PhD studentships valued at £55,650 each
The University of Brighton's Doctoral College invites applications from around the world for one of up to 40 new PhD studentships available for entry during the 2012/2013 academic year.
The studentships offer funding to pursue research across a range of topics in the arts and humanities, life and physical sciences, and the social sciences. Each studentship will support full-time doctoral study over a three year period.
You will be part of our new university wide Doctoral College that fully supports doctoral studies within the university's research culture.
Our support for researcher development, recognised this year with the prestigious European Commission HR Excellence in Research Award, includes the annual The Future's Bright conference for early career and doctoral researchers.
In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008) the University of Brighton moved 21 places up the Times Higher Education quality league tables. Ninety-eight researchers submitted for Art and Design, securing 35 per cent world-leading activity, with another nine units of assessment recording world-leading research.
The University of Brighton is committed to delivering transformative research that has real-life positive impacts. We believe there are two types of research - applied research and research that is yet to be applied. To see a range of the university's research visit www.brighton. ac.uk/transformi ng
Depending on your circumstances each studentship is worth up to £55,650 over three years and covers tuition fees for UK/EU applicants and includes a contribution of £14,300 per annum towards living expenses. We would also like to hear from suitably qualified international candidates. The award will be of the same overall value, to cover international tuition fees and a contribution towards living expenses. The university will be offering up to 40 studentships. The successful candidates will be selected on academic merit and the university reserves the right to offer less than the full 40 studentships.
