Projects still available for full time October 2020 entry
Following our first round of interviews for October 2020 entry, some PhD projects are accepting applications with a new deadline of Friday 29th May 2020.
Up to two full-time PhD studentships, funded by the STFC and the OU, are available. To be eligible for a full award (Astronomy and Space Instrumentation), normally a student must have no restrictions on how long they can stay in the UK and have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the studentship; this requirement does not apply to Physics. The 3-year research studentships provide a maintenance grant of £15,009 per year (2019-2020 rate) and all academic fees are covered.
Following shortlisting, interviews will be held remotely on Friday 5th June 2020.
If you would like to apply then please read the guidance on applying for a PhD studentship here and send a completed application form - home and EU students and up to date CV, list of individual courses taken and grades obtained, a personal statement, plus any other relevant information that you think may support your case for consideration, together with an outline of the project(s) of interest to STEM-SPS-PhD by the application deadline. You do not need to submit a research proposal for any of these projects, as they are already defined by us. You are encouraged to contact the lead supervisor of the project(s) for any informal enquiries.
This is a STFC CASE+ studentship.
