We are currently accepting applications to study for a PhD in psychology, conducting research with leading academics, their research teams and collaborators. These are open studentships, where applicants need not have their own specific research proposal. Indeed many of our students arrive having only identified a general area of interest in which to conduct their research apprenticeships, and there is opportunity for training in a wide range of techniques. By the time our students have competed their PhDs, the overwhelming majority will have published scientific papers in leading peer-reviewed journals, and go on to secure positions in academic or academic-related domains (e.g., fellowships, post-doctoral research in the UK or abroad, postgraduate taught courses, lectureships, industrial research).
During the PhD, you will have opportunities to be trained in many techniques relevant to your topic area, and to gain experience from projects beyond your own, in order to strengthen your research expertise and future employment prospects.
Studentships will commence in October 2020, and will cover your tuition fees as well as a maintenance grant. In 2019-2020 the maintenance grant for full-time students was £15,009 per annum. As well as tuition fees and a maintenance grant, all School of Psychology students receive conference and participant money (£2250 for the duration of the studentship). They also receive a computer and office space, additional funding for their research, and access to courses offered by the University's Graduate College to which they would become a member.
The closing date for applications is 31st March 2020 (5pm)
This studentship is open to Home, EU or international students.
The award offered will cover Home/EU fees and maintenance stipend.
International candidates are welcomed but must be able to self-fund the difference between Home/EU and International fees
