Fully-funded PhD studentship in geography

The School of Geography at the University of Nottingham (UK) invites applications from suitably qualified students for a School of Geography PhD studentship to cover maintenance and fees for full-time study for three years beginning in Autumn 2018.

The studentship will fund PhD research into any field of geography. The School of Geography has four research themes

  • Geosciences
  • Environment and Society
  • Economic Worlds
  • Cultural and Historical Geography

Projects with any of these themes, or that cut across multiple themes are welcome. School of Geography is committed to high-quality research and knowledge transfer and we have a strong culture of interdisciplinary and collaborative research, with a strong and supportive postgraduate research culture and training programme.

Interested candidates should contact potential supervisors to discuss project ideas prior to applying.

The candidate will have achieved at least an upper second (2:1) bachelors degree (or international equivalent) in geography or a relevant field that provides suitable background for their planned project. A masters qualification in a relevant field with an average of at least 60%, or relevant professional experience, is preferable. View full entry requirements.

The successful applicant will be entitled to a full-time yearly stipend comparable to RCUK rates (circa £14,777 for 2018/2019) plus Home/EU tuition fees (ca. £4,260 for 2018/2019). Note these rates are updated each year and thus are subject to change. International tuition fees are substantially more and the school studentship does not provide additional funding to cover these. View details of how to apply using the online system for postgraduate study.

Students should include the term 'School Studentship' in the proposed funding section during the application process. If you have questions about projects, please contact potential supervisors. Queries about applying can be directed to the postgraduate administrator for Geography, Lauren Trevatt.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 20 March 2018. The studentship will start in late September 2018 which is the beginning of the academic session 2018/19.
