HAS Dean’s Society, Science and Health PhD Studentships 2022
The Faculty of Health and Applied Sciences at UWE Bristol is pleased to offer the opportunity to apply for the following funded full-time PhD studentships.
The expected start date of these studentships is 1 January 2023.
The closing date for applications is 19 August 2022.
Please note: out of the eight projects being advertised for the Dean’s Studentship, the faculty will fund four. The projects for funding will be selected based on the merit of applicants following the process outlined below.
There will be a two stage interview process. Supervisory teams of each project will shortlist the best candidates for an initial interview with the supervisory team. Following this first interview, two candidates will be selected; a first-choice candidate and a reserve candidate. The first-choice candidate (or the reserve, if the first-choice candidate is unavailable) will then be interviewed by a Faculty Panel (the second interview). The Faculty Panel will be chaired by Pro-Vice Chancellor and Executive Dean and will consist of senior Faculty staff. The Faculty level interview will take place on the 31 October 2022.
Unsuccessful candidates will have the opportunity for self-funded places.
