Applications are invited for the newly established Eileen Cowan PhD Studentship to be taken up within the College of Life Sciences at the University of Leicester.
The funding will cover a stipend paid direct to the student for up to 4 years (at the UKRI rate) and full tuition fees for 3.5 years. The studentship will only cover fees at the home student rate and therefore, for academic year 2021/2 start, both home and EU students can apply.
A total research training support grant (RTSG) of up to £15,000 will be provided to cover the student’s research costs, this funding is held in the department for the student and supervisory team to access.
