The University of Brighton Doctoral College is offering fully funded research studentships for 2022. These studentships will support the next generation of leading academics and typically provide three years of funding for doctoral study. At the University of Brighton, our research and knowledge exchange activity enriches our teaching, drives important partnerships and collaborations, and produces new knowledge and positive societal impact.
The deadline for applications is Monday 14 March and successful applicants will commence their doctoral research in October 2022. The studentships are available across disciplines and are funded by the University of Brighton, with some funded jointly with external partners and two through the University Alliance’s Doctoral Training Alliance programme, Future Societies.
Projects have been selected in line with our aim to tackle global challenges by addressing climate change, contributing to creative, sustainable economies and improving wellbeing, as well as, equality and inclusivity. These opportunities range from examining the new politics of climate populism; exploring innovations and practices to improve sustainability in the fashion industry; investigating new treatments for osteoarthritis to seeking insights into English literacy acquisition and wellbeing among refugee children.
Professor Rusi Jaspal, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research and Knowledge Exchange) said:
“Doctoral research is vital to our university; we are committed to nurturing talent, sharing our rich research culture and delivering an inspiring and supported doctoral student experience. We look forward to hearing from ambitious applicants keen to join a thriving postgraduate community who want to contribute to our mission to stimulate innovation, test conventional wisdom and address the most pressing issues facing our world today.”
