This PhD will be funded from a stipend donated by the family of Dr Ros Hague, a Senior Lecturer in Politics at NTU who died suddenly in November 2017, age 42.
International applicants are eligible, and encouraged, to apply as well as Home/EU students.
The Dr Ros Hague stipend will fund up to five fees-only studentships. In addition, two of these may also be eligible for living costs at the standard UKRI rate. The final decision about how many studentships there will be – and which ones have full living costs attached – will be taken at the selection stage.
