Leeds Met offers PhD bursaries
Leeds Metropolitan University is offering graduates the chance to join the Carnegie Faculty of Sport and Education to participate in post-graduate research studentships.
The hallmark of the work of the Carnegie Research Institute (CRI) in Sport, Leisure, Education and Childhood is its critical engagement with the real world, challenging what is ‘taken for granted’.
The Institute already have a vibrant post-graduate research community with approximately 150 research students.
The CRI brings a fresh and informed perspective to research on sport and exercise science, leisure, education and childhood. CRI is offering the chance to join a large and vibrant research team within the Carnegie Faculty of Sport and Education.
The CRI is offering 4 post-graduate research studentships available to study for a Doctorate of Philosophy for a period of three years.
Each bursary will pay £12,900/yr + UK/EU fees. These bursaries are available from 1st January 2011. The studentships will be available for a period of three years, subject to satisfactory progress.
Applicants should have a good quality first degree in an appropriate subject. A Master’s with honours qualification could also be an advantage. However, a spirit of enquiry, a thirst for knowledge and perseverance are equally important.
The CRI is strongly supportive of the University’s position on equal opportunities and welcome applications from all committed researchers with flair, irrespective of race, ethnicity, gender, disability or sexual orientation.
