The University of Central Lancashire is providing doctoral level Fellowships as part of the University Alliance’s Doctoral Training Alliance (DTA) following a multi-million euro award from the European Union.
The extended University Alliance Doctoral Training Alliance (DTA3) brings together the University Alliance’s existing doctoral training initiatives in Applied Biosciences for Health, Energy and Social Policy following a €6.5million award from the European Commission, under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) COFUND scheme.
DTA3 will be delivered across a consortium of 15 universities across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It will develop nearly 100 early-stage researchers from across the EU and beyond as internationally-connected, independent researchers with interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral skills and experience, ready for industrial or academic employment in the European and UK priority challenge areas of healthcare, clean energy and social policy.
The programme will foster transnational mobility through an extended network of international associate partners in Europe and overseas, to provide recruitment and international placements.
Early-stage researchers can apply for an interdisciplinary PhD at a DTA3 university and join the wider DTA cohort currently made up of 150 students and 300 supervisors.
The 15 universities are:
