Would you like the scope to develop your own project for doctoral research, within one of several thriving research groups at a multiple award-winning University?
A new opportunity is available for four outstanding doctoral candidates to develop their careers as researchers within the School of Human and Health Sciences at the University of Huddersfield. The School has an ambitious programme of research that is making a real difference to people's lives. We are highly collaborative, working closely with others to tackle real-world problems for health and society. Our School is comprised of internationally renowned academics from a range of health, behavioural and social science disciplines and we welcome innovative proposals for PhD research which address one or more of our key research themes within the disciplines of Sociology, Criminology, Politics, Nursing/Midwifery, Applied Health Sciences, Public Health, Social Work/Social Policy and Psychology.
All postgraduate researchers in our School benefit from skilled supervision by experienced and enthusiastic researchers and a comprehensive programme of training in research methods and researcher development. The successful candidates would be expected to play an active role in our research community and to contribute an average of 6 hours per week to undergraduate teaching and/or supporting staff research.

Three of our scholarships are intended to supplement the UK doctoral loan and therefore comprise a bursary of £6,000 per annum over three years, plus a full fee waiver for Home/EU fees. A fourth three-year scholarship comprises an annual bursary of approximately £15,000 (rising each year) with Home/EU fees waived and is offered as part of the University Alliance, Social Policy Doctoral Training Alliance (DTA) scheme. Overseas applicants are welcome to apply but will be required to cover the annual difference between Home/EU fees and the overseas tuition fee rates (for 2019/20 this difference is £9,835 per annum, payable by the student).
