Bangor University - School of Psychology

The local Bangor contact for the Psychology Pathway is: Dr. Richard Ramsey


The University of Bangor’s School of Psychology, supported by the ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership for Wales (Wales DTP), invites applications for PhD study, with the possibility of being awarded a fully-funded ESRC DTP Studentship, available to start in October 2017. We expect to recommend one application to the national pathway convenor and there will be up to three doctoral studentship awards in the pathway area of Psychology within the Wales DTP.

Bangor’s School of Psychology was established in 1963 and now has one of the largest student cohorts in the UK. It has consistently performed exceptionally well in the UK’s annual National Student Survey, where it is ranked 4th of 117 in UK (NSS 2016), and is currently ranked in the top 20 in the 2014 REF.

Requirements: Applications are invited from exceptional candidates with a first class or strong upper second class honours degree, or appropriate Master’s degree.

Further information: These studentships are ‘open’ awards. Applicants should approach a potential supervisor before submitting their application to confirm that there is appropriate supervisory capacity within the University and to discuss their draft application. Information on the research interests of our staff can be found on the webpages the school of Psychology staff pages: https://www.bangor.ac.uk/psychology/contact.php.en#staff

A short description of the accredited Psychology pathway is also available on the ESRC Wales DTP website. The awards are available on either a 1+3 or +3 basis.

The closing deadline for applications is Wednesday 1 February 2017. Short-listed applicants will be invited to interview, which are expected to take place in March 2017. After interview, a final short-list of applicants will be put forward to the ESRC Wales DTP Doctoral Panel at which final decisions with regard to studentship awards will be made. Successful applicants can expect to hear by mid-April 2017.

It is important to note that PhD funding is contingent on success at the second round of the competition.
