3 PhD scholarships available

2023/24 Kent-Lille Studentship Competition.
This joint PhD scholarship arrangement will fund 3 PhD scholarships (notionally 1 in Arts and Humanities, 1 in Natural Sciences or Computing, Engineering and Mathematical Sciences, and 1 in Human and Social Sciences, KBS or Law and Society and Social Justice), to include fees plus a maintenance stipend at the Home Research Council rate for three years. 

The document below provides details of the application process and deadlines. The process will be project-led, with proposals by academic staff, but we anticipate that staff may have a potential student in mind for these projects. The studentships will be available on a cotutelle basis and will require co-supervisors at Kent and Lille; students will be required to spend at least 12 months at each institution. Further information about staff at Lille can be gained from Kathleen O’Connor, Vice-President of International Development at Lille (kathleen.o-connor@univ-lille.fr).

The deadline for applications is Wednesday 11 January 2023. Further information – including the application form and details on how to apply – can be found in the document below. Note in particular the priority areas, the final two of which – ‘Human-friendly digital world’ and ‘Changing cultures, societies, and practices’ – are of obvious relevance to the Arts & Humanities. Applications may, however, be on any topic.
