UK : 35 Three-Year, Full-Time Doctoral University Research Studentships

City University

City University London's success in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) confirmed a major step-change in our research profile. World-class activity was recognised in many areas, leading to an increase of over 50% in our quality research funding. Based on that success, we have recently concluded a major review of research and knowledge transfer, which has allowed us to redefine our research as an all-inclusive set of activities comprising basic and applied research, policy- and practice-focused research, knowledge and technology transfer, entrepreneurship and consultancy. As we prepare for the future, our attention is focused on demonstrating the societal value of our research and the impact it makes on business, industry, government policies and the professions.
Our research and enterprise activities are more exciting and diverse than ever, with subjects ranging across business, social sciences, engineering and mathematics, informatics, law, music, journalism, cultural policy and a wide range of areas in the health-related domains.
We are now seeking to build on our success by offering 35 three-year, full-time doctoral University Research Studentships, available to both home and overseas fee-paying students. Applications can be made to undertake doctoral studies in any School of the University.
In addition, we would welcome applications from excellent candidates who are practising nurses and midwives who intend to use the degree to further their professional career. This follows the outstanding performance of our researchers in the Nursing and Midwifery areas in the 2008 RAE.
For entry in October 2010, the studentships will attract a bursary of £14,500 per annum in addition to payment of the tuition fees, plus an allowance of £1,000 across the studentship period for conference attendance, equipment etc. Successful candidates will usually be expected to undertake some teaching support activity in their second and third years, by agreement with the School concerned.
Full details can be found here:
Closing date for applications: Monday 25 January 2010
