Applications are invited for several full time PhD (via MPhil) studentships in Astrophysics in the Jeremiah Horrocks Institute. The studentships are tenable for 3.5 years full-time (subject to satisfactory progress) and will cover the cost of tuition fees at UK rates together with a maintenance grant (£17,668 per year 2022/23 rates) for eligible applicants.
The studentships are funded by the Science and Technologies Facilities Council (STFC)/University of Central Lancashire/Moses Holden Foundation. The studentships are open to international applicants, however international applicants will be required to pay the difference between the UK and international tuition fee rate.
The successful applicants will be required to comply with the terms of the funding.
Project Title: Will vary dependent on successful applicants.
The Jeremiah Horrocks Institute is pleased to announce the availability of several new PhD Studentships in Astrophysics.
