PhD Studentships: Funded via the Norwich Research Park’s Doctoral Training Partnership
Applications Close: 25 November 2019
The Quadram Institute has 16 PhD studentship opportunities open for applications through the Norwich Research Park Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP).
This programme is unique in bringing together five world-class research institutions on a single site giving doctoral candidates the opportunity to pursue multidisciplinary research within a single programme.
Students pursue a single research project which occupies the majority of their four year degree. In addition, all Doctoral Training Partnership students are required to spend three months during their degree undertaking a professional internship working on a topic that does not directly relate to their PhD project.
