Applications are invited for four (or five) full time PhD (via MPhil) studentships in Mathematics, Physics or Astrophysics in the Jeremiah Horrocks Institute in the School of Physical Sciences and Computing. The studentships are tenable for 3.5 years full-time (subject to satisfactory progress) and will cover the cost of tuition fees at UK/EU rates together with a maintenance grant (£15009 per year 2019/20 rates) for eligible applicants.
International applicants will be required to pay the difference between the UK/EU and International tuition fee rate. A maintenance grant (£15009 2019/20 rates) will be paid per annum.
The successful applicants will be required to comply with the terms of the funding.
The Jeremiah Horrocks Institute is pleased to announce the availability of four (or five) new PhD Studentships in Mathematics, Physics or Astrophysics.
The projects will be in one of the areas described on the Jeremiah Horrocks website, depending on the preferences of the students ranked highest on the list of applicants (ranking will be carried out by JHI staff based on application forms, references, and interviews of short-listed candidates).
These projects are suggested opportunities offered by JHI staff. If you would like more details or would like to discuss something else related to their field of study, then please contact us directly.
Candidates should have (or expect to hold) a UK Bachelor of Science degree (or equivalent qualification) at 2:1 or above in a related area (Maths, Physics or Astrophysics), or a UK Masters level qualification (e.g. MSc or MPhys).
International and EU applicants require an English Language level of UKVI IELTS 6.5 (no sub-score below 6.0) or equivalent qualification.
For further information, please visit the Jeremiah Horrocks Institute website.
