The University of Brighton Doctoral College is inviting applications for up to 40 new Doctoral College studentships for the 2012/2013 academic year. Each studentship offers funding to support full-time doctoral study at the university over a three-year period.

Our support for researcher development has been recognised in 2012 with the prestigious European Commission HR Excellence in Research Award.
You will be assisted in your discovery of new knowledge by a strong supervisory team and a researcher development programme. With many of our researchers world leaders in their fields, you will work in collaboration with the university to build specialist areas of excellence and ensure the work's ability to impact.
