Four full-time PhD studentships are open for applications. The studentship award will include a tuition fee waiver (up to the value of the home rate, currently £4,000 per annum) plus an annual tax-free stipend equivalent to the standard UK Research and Innovation minimum rate of £15,285 for 2020/21, for a maximum of three years.
