PhD studentships in the Department of Organizational Psychology

Birkbeck, University of London

The Department of Organizational Psychology would like to invite applications for full-time PhD studentships, starting in the academic year 2018/19.

The Department has two studentships available:

  • One fully funded studentship covering fees at Home/EU rate, plus an annual stipend
  • One studentship covering fees only at Home/EU rate

Applications for part-time study may be considered at an appropriate pro-rata rate.

Closing date for applications: 4 March 2018

About the studentships

Fully funded awards include a fee waiver up to the value of the full-time home/EU rate for MPhil/PhD degrees in addition to an annual stipend set at Research Council rates (currently £16,553 2017/18; pro-rata in the case of a part-time award).

Fees only studentships include a fee waiver up to the value of the full-time home/EU rate for MPhil/PhD degrees only.

Studentships are awarded in spring 2018, to be taken up in October 2018/19 academic year. Full-time studentships will be tenable for up to 3 years (subject to the holder making satisfactory progression as assessed through the College’s regular structures for reviewing the performance of doctoral students).

The competition is primarily open to NEW home/EU and international students who are applying for a full-time MPhil/PhD place. Candidates are required to submit both a College application form for a place in the MPhil/PhD programme and a studentship application form. Candidates will be considered for admission for the MPhil/PhD first and for the award only after they have been offered a place on the programme.

Who is eligible?

We welcome applications from strong candidates with research interests within the field of organizational Psychology and a desire to pursue an academic career.

The studentship is open to candidates with a 2:1 or 1st class undergraduate degree (or equivalent) in any discipline and, preferably, a master's degree in a relevant subject area.

To find out more about the research interests of our academic staff, please go to our website: http://www.bbk.ac.uk/orgpsych/staff.

How to apply

Candidates must submit both a College application form for a place in the MPhil/PhD programme and a studentship application form with research proposal, for further information, please go to:  http://www.bbk.ac.uk/orgpsych/prospective/phd/apply

Candidates will be considered for admission first and for the award only after they have been offered a place on the programme.

Before applying for a research degree, the most important aspects to consider are selecting your topic and identifying an appropriate supervisor. In order to do one of our MPhil/PhD degrees, we need to be sure that we have an academic with the experience, knowledge and expertise to supervise your topic and your proposed methodology.

Before you apply, therefore, please check our academic staff pages to see if any of them list topics and methodological approaches that relate to your area of interest. You may wish to make informal enquiries with a potential supervisor at this point to determine if there is a match between your and the supervisor’s interests, as the availability of an appropriate supervisor is one of the criteria for further consideration of any application.

You will also need to submit a research proposal as part of your application; please see this guidance on how to prepare this.

Please visit the Department of Organizational Psychology website (http://www.bbk.ac.uk/orgpsych/) for more details.
