Three fully funded PhD Research Studentships in Future Societies

Applications are invited by Centre for Future Societies Research for three fully funded PhD studentships at the University of Hertfordshire. These research studentships will be part of the University Alliance (UA) Doctoral Training Alliance in Future Societies. The studentships are offered on a full-time basis for three years from September 2023 (subject to satisfactory progress) and provide a bursary of a minimum of £17,668 per annum, including a full tuition fee waiver for three years. Awards increase every year in line with UKRI recommendations. The levels given here are for 2022 to 2023.

Please note that the studentships are available and therefore applicable to UK nationals/UK resident applicants only, as result of the available source of funding. The University particularly welcomes applications from British Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic applicants.

Please check available project titles and corresponding details. Further particulars on specific projects can be obtained from the corresponding principal supervisors, to whom informal enquiries can also be addressed.
