Ph.D Research Studentships in Finance
The Department of Business & Management is delighted to offer up to 6 Research Studentships with effect from September 2014 to highly-qualified candidates who have been accepted to study for a Ph.D in Finance (depending on methodology, candidates for Accounting topics may study for a PhD in Finance or a PhD in Management).
JOB QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates should normally have completed, or be in the process of completing, a Masters degree in a relevant subject with a Distinction or Merit classification.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Candidates should (a) complete a formal Ph.D application to the Department; and (b) submit a separate application for the studentship (http://www.sussex. ac.uk/bam/ pgstudy/doctoral).
Please consult the departmental website for information about the research interests of potential supervisors within the Department. Both applications should be submitted by March 28th 2014 in order to be considered for the studentships. The successful candidates will be chosen on the basis of the quality of their Ph.D research proposals and the availability of suitable supervisors, and will be expected to have English language capabilities adequate to carry out their teaching duties.
FUNDING: The successful candidates will receive an annual stipend of British Pound 15,000 together with a fee waiver at either the UK/EU rate or the overseas rate (as applicable), and will be required to undertake teaching and associated duties for up to six hours a week during term-time. Each studentship is awarded for one year in the first instance, renewable (up to a maximum of three years in total) subject to a satisfactory annual review of research progression and of teaching performance.
