The School of Business and Management invites applications for Research Studentships open to UK, EU and international students. Studentships will be awarded in March 2020 to the most outstanding candidates in the Humanities and Social Sciences applying for a full-time or part-time PhD programme starting in September 2020. Applications will also be considered from students who are currently in the first year of a full-time PhD programme, or the first two years of a part-time programme.
Awards are tenable for up to three years, and cover tuition fees and a maintenance stipend of £17,009 per year (£8,505 part-time). Subject to funding arrangements, holders of research studentships will have the opportunity to teach up to 4 hours per week in the second and third years of their study. The School also provides all PhD researchers with a £1,000 research allowance for conference attendance and other research related expenses. Award holders will be expected to be resident in London during the period of the studentship.
We welcome applications from suitably qualified candidates in the following subject areas: Accounting and Finance, Behavioural Economics, Climate Policy and Environmental Change, Complex Networks and Innovation, Employment Relations, Equality and Diversity, Human Resource Management, Inequality and Poverty, Information Systems and Digital Technologies, Labour Economics, Management and Organization Studies, Marketing, Monetary and Financial Economics, Operations Research, Public Economics and Management, Strategic Management and Leadership, Supply Chain Management, Urban and Regional Development.
Candidates must specify which research group they wish to join and identify potential supervisor(s) on their application form. Candidates are encouraged to discuss their research proposal with a member of academic staff specialising in their research area.
BAME Studentships for UK/EU candidates
We encourage applicants from BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) groups who have been previously under-represented in this process. For 2020 entry, the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences will be offering two fully funded doctoral studentships (tuition fees and stipend of £17,009 per year, or £8,505 part-time) to UK or EU applicants from a BAME background. Awards are tenable for up to three years. Applications will also be considered from students who are currently in the first year of a full-time PhD programme, or the first two years of a part-time programme. To be eligible to apply for these studentships you must be UK or EU permanent residents from a BAME background, and eligible to pay home/EU student fees.
