About the Award
Applications are invited for fully funded PhD studentships in the Hertfordshire Business School at the University of Hertfordshire. The School is making a strategic investment to help develop the next generation of academic researchers in business and management research with a series of studentships designed to help train people aiming to develop a future career in higher education. It will combine doctoral research with an introduction to teaching and learning and an opportunity to develop a rounded career trajectory.
The studentships are offered on a full-time basis for three years (subject to satisfactory progress). They provide a tax-free bursary (currently £17,668 per annum for the academic year 2021-22) and includes a full domestic tuition fee waiver for three years. Additional research funding will be available to support fieldwork costs and appropriate conference attendance. There will also be opportunities to undertake teaching related activities in a relevant area for up to 30 hours per year, and to gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education and recognition from Advance HE as a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Any additional teaching undertaken will be remunerated separately.
Supported by a team of supervisors with experience and expertise on the selected topic of research, successful applicants will be part of a stimulating research community which will fully support them on their path towards academic excellence, reflecting the enhanced position of the School in the recent Research Excellence Framework in Business and Management. Ranked 1st globally for overall research student satisfaction for Business and Economics research degree programmes (2019 Postgraduate Research Experience Survey), the University of Hertfordshire is also ranked 10th globally for postgraduate research student satisfaction (2021 Postgraduate Research Experience Survey). Our ambition is to nurture and develop the next generation of Business and Management researchers alongside our ambitious and dynamic colleagues.
Candidates are encouraged to apply early as the closing date is on a rolling basis and open until filled.
