Applications are invited for this national PhD studentship competition for 3 year awards from individuals with a strong academic record who wish to develop a career in primary care research. Awards are offered at the following partner universities within the SPCR: Bristol, Cambridge, Keele, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Oxford, Southampton and University College London.
Awards will normally be taken up in October 2018.
Applicants must have a first degree in a discipline relevant to primary care research and will be expected to complete a PhD/DPhil during the award period. The precise academic qualifications required depend on the university and training offered. This award will fund tuition fees up to the value of Home/EU fees; students with overseas status are welcome to apply but will need to fund the remainder of their fees from alternative sources.
Studentship awards include fees and an annual tax-free stipend normally of £16,000.
