The Biomolecular Science Research Centre at Sheffield Hallam University intends to appoint Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTA’s) on a 3.5 year fixed-term studentship from February 2021 and include full UK/EU tuition fees and an annual stipend of £15,285.

Graduate Teaching Assistants undertake certain teaching duties associated with the student experience, in addition to working towards a PhD qualification.

As a minimum, applicants should possess a 1st or 2.1 Honours degree in a related discipline. A Master’s degree in a relevant subject area would be an advantage.

For these studentships, the PhD students will be registered for a PhD, alongside which they will contribute to up to 180 hours of support for research or teaching related activity per academic year. This activity forms part of the scholarship award and there is no additional payment for it.

Currently enrolled doctoral students are not eligible to apply.

The start date for the studentship will be February 2021.
