About the Project
Candidates are expected to hold (or be about to obtain) a first class undergraduate degree and ideally a postgraduate qualification that included a research project (e.g. MSc or MRes). Evidence of research output (e.g. peer-reviewed publication, newsletter article, conference presentation) would be advantageous. Candidates with an interest in audiology, hearing science, psychology, neuroscience, medical/clinical science or related discipline are encouraged to apply. For information on how to apply for this project, please visit the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health Doctoral Academy website (https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/study/research/apply/). Informal enquiries may be made directly to the primary supervisor.
For international students we also offer a unique 4 year PhD programme that gives you the opportunity to undertake an accredited Teaching Certificate whilst carrying out an independent research project across a range of biological, medical and health sciences.

As an equal opportunities institution we welcome applicants from all sections of the community regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation and transgender status. All appointments are made on merit.
