ULMS PhD Funding Call: September 2021 entry

Reference: PHD-GTF-ULMS-2021
Closing date: 12:00pm, midday, UK time, Wednesday 5th May 2021

The University of Liverpool Management School

The University of Liverpool Management School is inviting applications from prospective PhD candidates with an outstanding academic achievement and research potential for a number of GTF Studentships (Graduate Teaching Fellowships) in the 2021/22 academic year.

Graduate Teaching Fellowships (GTFs)

The Graduate Teaching Fellowships provide an opportunity for applicants with a First or Upper Second Class Honours degree, a Masters degree in a cognate subject and a strong commitment to research, to combine studying for a PhD with the acquisition of teaching experience. Each studentship is associated to a particular subject group within the School, of which there are currently six. Participating in the Scheme will enable GTFs to attain funding for their doctoral research whilst receiving training and mentoring to become rounded academics. Successful candidates will be required to complete 300 hours of teaching during their programme, alongside the doctoral research project. GTFs will receive an annual stipend of £15,609 plus a fee waiver and will have access to student support funds in line with the wider doctoral training provision at ULMS. These fellowships will be open to all nationalities and subject areas. Home students receive a full School studentship (fees and maintenance grant). Overseas students will receive fees at Home rate (a possible top up payment may be available for International candidates, subject to availability); the maintenance grant for Overseas and Home students is the same amount.
