PhD and Postdoctoral Funding Opportunities

If you’re interested in working with us as a PhD or postdoctoral researcher, you might want to look at these new funding opportunities for entry in October 2020.

Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership studentships are open for top-calibre PhD candidates, and provide a comprehensive and attractive package of financial support. Applicants must be United Kingdom citizens or residents of another European Union country.

Durham Doctoral Studentships are available to international postgraduate researchers of exceptional ability.

In both cases, we ask for a draft application by 5th December 2019, with a full application due on 9th January 2020. You’re advised to start by discussing your application with a member of academic staff in the department who you think is qualified to advise you on your research. Further details are available on our Financial Support website.

A range of other postgraduate funding, as well as loans, is collected on on the University scholarships website.

For postdoctoral researchers, advance notice that applications for Leverhulme Trust Fellowships to commence from September 2020 will open in January 2020. As only a limited number of applications can be supported each year, potential applicants should make early contact with relevant academic staff to refine their application. You will need to have an excellent track record and a new, exciting, clearly-defined research proposal that appeals beyond your specialism. Further details are available via Leverhulme.

There are postgraduate open days on 20th November, and also 12th February. Book now, come along and see us, and find out how we provide a stimulating and supportive environment in which to undertake research.
