PhD studentships in Organizational Psychology

Applications are invited for full-time PhD studentships in the Department of Organizational Psychology, starting in the academic year 2017/18.

This is a re-advertisement so candidates who have applied for these studentships in an earlier round this year should not re-apply.

Two studentships are available:

  • One fully funded studentship covering fees at Home/EU rate, plus an annual stipend of £16,553
  • One studentship covering fees only at Home/EU rate

Applications for part-time study may be considered, at an appropriate pro-rata rate and extended duration.

Closing date for applications: 18 June 2017

  • The studentships are open to full-time home, EU and international students. Candidates must submit both a college application form for a place in the MPhil/PhD programme and the application for a studentship. Candidates will be considered for admission first, and for the award only after they have been offered a place in the programme.

Who is eligible?

  • We welcome applications from strong candidates with research interests within the field of organizational psychology and a desire to pursue an academic career.
  • The studentship is open to candidates with a 2:1 or 1st class undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in any discipline and, preferably, a master's degree in a relevant subject area.

Factors to consider before applying

  • The most important parts of applying for a research degree are selecting your topic and identifying an appropriate supervisor. In order to do one of our MPhil/PhD degrees, we need to be sure that we have an academic with the experience, knowledge and expertise to supervise your topic and your proposed methodology.
  • Before you apply, therefore, please check our academic staff pages to see if any of them list topics and methodological approaches that relate to your area of interest. You may wish to make informal enquiries with a potential supervisor at this point to determine if there is a match between your and the supervisor’s interests, as such the availability of an appropriate supervisor is one of the criteria for further consideration of any application.
  • You will need to submit a research proposal as part of your application; please see this guidance on how to prepare this.
