Fully-funded PhD studentship in the School of Geography

The School of Geography at the University of Nottingham (UK) invites applications from suitably qualified students for a three-year PhD studentship beginning in autumn 2023.

Application deadline: Friday 14 April 2023

Eligibility

To be considered for the studentship, applicants must hold an offer to start a PhD research degree programme in the School of Geography between 1 October 2023 and 1 February 2024. Offer-holders should download and complete the application form (Word) and submit it to tara.kaur@nottingham.ac.uk by 5pm on Friday 14 April 2023.

The studentship will cover fees at the Home student rate (£4,850 for 2023/24) and provide a full-time yearly stipend comparable to RCUK rates (currently £17,668).

International applications are welcome, but as the fee funding is capped at the Home student rate successful international applicants would be expected to fund the fee shortfall (international fees for 2023/24 are estimated at £27,200 for science and £20,500 for social science PhD projects). All rates are reviewed annually and thus are subject to change.

The studentship will fund PhD research in any field of geography supported by our four research themes: Geosciences; Environment and Society; Economic Worlds; and Cultural and Historical Geography. We also welcome projects that link across multiple themes.

The school is committed to high-quality research and knowledge transfer, rooted in a culture of interdisciplinary and collaborative research and a strong and supportive postgraduate research culture and training programme. More information is provided on the Postgraduate Research pages of our website.

The University of Nottingham is committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) for our student and staff community. For more information please see our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion webpages.
