Fully Funded PhD Studentships Carnegie School of Sport - Starting October 2018

The Carnegie School of Sport is offering several fully funded PhD studentships. Each studentship provides a bursary of £14,777 per annum (pro-rata into 12 monthly payments) and UK/EU Fees paid for a period of three years. It is a requirement that the successful applicants will be based full-time at our Headingley Campus or as otherwise directed when required.

The outstanding quality of our research was confirmed in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, where we ranked 2nd nationally when accounting for both research quality and the number of contributing staff (Sport and Exercise Sciences, Leisure and Tourism). The School delivers international research excellence through its research centres and strategic research areas. The interdisciplinary and applied nature of much of our research means that students work on challenging problems and have extensive opportunities to develop new and valuable skills. 

We are seeking highly motivated and enthusiastic students who will fully engage in the dynamic and vibrant research environment offered by the Carnegie School of Sport. We have a number of research projects for potential candidates to apply to; each project has a named contact to discuss any application for their specific project. Later in this page is a link to the application form and details on how to apply. It also shows the contact details to our University Graduate School, should you have any questions about the application process.
