Part-time PhD Scholarships now available.
UHN are pleased to announce funding for part-time PhDs (UHN PhD Scholarship). This supports our academic strategy to grow our research active workforce and to support research that is relevant to our patients.
UHN will fund two PhDs across our hospital group per year. Funding is available of up to £20,000 per year. This will:
- Fund PhD fees
- Contribute to buy out time to support your PhD studies
We are working with the University of Leicester, our academic partner, to award the UHN PhD scholarships. University of Leicester will manage the application process and, if necessary, support the identification of a PhD supervisor if your application is successful. UHN will fund PhD studentships from any relevant research area, including non-clinical PhD projects, which show consideration for the UHN strategy values.
Applicants are required to have developed a full research proposal which is to be submitted as part of the application.
Applications open to University Hospitals of Northamptonshire NHS Group staff only.
