The studentships will be awarded across the School, providing full fees (at Home/EU/International rate) and a stipend of £15,009* a year for up to four years. They will be awarded on the basis of outstanding academic achievement and research potential, and will be open to all nationalities and subject areas. These applications are initially for the Graduate Teaching Fellowships (GTFs), but by completing an application form you will be considered for both the ULMS GTF Scheme and ESRC Studentships funded via the North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership, NWSSDTP.
The GTFs 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. GTF programmes run for four years (early completions are permitted. GTFs who complete their PhDs before four years will default into a post-doctoral position until GTF funding ceases). In year one, fellows are full time registered for their PhD and are required to demonstrate progress in developing their research skills, typically by completing relevant courses on select Masters programmes and completion of teacher training programmes offered by the University of Liverpool. Years two to four require a total of up to 300 hours of teaching (equivalent to 100 hours per annum), alongside the doctoral research project.
Shortlisted applicants from the GTF Scheme will be further advised by the ULMS Research Team to apply for the prestigious ESRC NWSSDTP studentships as part of this application process. For these studentships, applicants are organized into one of three cohorts: Business and Management or Economics or Accounting and Finance and applications are invited for both the 1+3 programme and the +3 programme.
GTFs are funded by the University of Liverpool Management School (ULMS) and represent a significant investment to further consolidate its position as a vibrant and distinct research community, as indicated by publications in top-tier journals across many research areas. In addition, the school hosts a number of editorships in prestigious academic journals.
