Ten Full-Time Funded PhD Studentships beginning September 2017

University of Leicester School of Business - Ten Full-Time Funded PhD Studentships beginning September 2017
 
The School of Business is pleased to be able to offer nine Graduate Teaching Assistantships (GTAships) and one Graduate Research Assistantship (GRAship). The closing date is midnight on 18th April 2017. All short-listed applicants will be interviewed for suitability. Interviews for these awards are provisionally scheduled for the end of May 2017. Please see document entitled 'Further Guidance' (here) for detailed information about each specific PhD research opportunity and the process we will use to allocate them.

The School of Business at the University of Leicester is renowned for the quality of its creative, interdisciplinary and heterodox research. We welcome applications from those interested in the critical and innovative rethinking of any of the following fields: accounting; finance; innovation, technology and organization; marketing; management and organization studies; work and employment. Our PhD programme is distinctive because it is firmly located within a broadly defined critical social science tradition. Our students draw on any of the different fields of management as well as on anthropology, cultural studies, economics, geography, physics and mathematics, science and technology studies, sociology, politics, philosophy and psychology amongst other disciplines in undertaking their research.

Each GTAship and the GRAship is worth approximately £18,748 per year over four years. These PhD research opportunities are for full-time study only and will commence in September 2017 with no exception. They will cover tuition fees at the UK/EU rate (currently £4,195). The GTAships and the GRAship include a stipend of £10,309 each year as well as a salary of approximately £4,244. Suitable applications are encouraged from both UK/EU students and from international students (outside the EU). However, please note that the award covers the UK/EU tuition fee rate only: an international student would need to pay the difference between this and the international tuition fee rate themselves. This would be approximately £9,356 per year.
For how to apply for these awards go to the “How to Apply” page. Please ensure that you submit all the required documents listed – the application will not be considered for the awards if they are not included. It is also essential that you read the 'Further Guidance' and the 'GTA Job Summary' / 'GRA Job Summary' before preparing your application which you will also find on that page.
