Competitions for studentships starting October 2020

The studentships on offer are:

  •  the student-led competition, in which applicants devise their own research proposal, is now closed. The next competition will open in October 2019.

  • the collaborative competition, in which applicants apply for a studentship linked to research projects created by supervisors and external partners. The next competition will open in November 2019.

  • the joint ARIES-SeNSS competition, in which applicants apply for a studentship attached to a project created by a supervisory team. The projects offered are all inter-disciplinary, working at the boundaries of both the ESRC and NERC (the Natural Environment Research Council). The next competition will open in October 2019.
