Bangor University

Bangor Business School, 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 September 2018. We expect to make a Doctoral Studentship award via one of the following pathways:

Bangor Business School (BBS) is a name synonymous with research excellence. The School scored a GPA of 2.81 in the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), with 68% of its research outputs published in 3* or 4* journals. The School is ranked 26th in the UK in terms of research intensity-weighted GPA results (REF 2014), which reflects the high proportion of research-active staff within the School. The BBS PhD programme is an essential part of the School’s research culture and has an international reputation for excellence.

Applications are invited from exceptional candidates with a first class or strong upper second class honours degree, or appropriate Master’s degree. Both the University and the ESRC Wales DTP value diversity and equality at all levels and encourage applications from all sections of the community. Applications for both full and part-time study are welcome.

Please refer to for ESRC DTP Studentship information and eligibility, and Bangor Business School PhD Studentships for September 2018 | Bangor University Business School for BBS Studentship information and eligibility.

Deadline for applications: 1st February 2018 (4pm).
