Fully funded PhD studentships at a leading research university are on offer for the most outstanding engineering and science students.
The University of Manchester is offering 10 fully funded courses starting this September at its Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, one of the largest research faculties in the country.
The department expects to recruit around 550 research students this year and will award the PhD Studentships to the 10 most outstanding applicants.
The studentships cover full fees as well as living expenses of £14,000 per annum and are open to both students from the UK and overseas.
EPS associate dean for Graduate Education, Professor Jim Miles, said: “The Faculty offers an outstanding environment for research.
“PhD students work with world-leading researchers tackling fundamental problems from biofuels to the structure of the universe.
“These studentships offer an unrivalled opportunity for excellent students to be part of a world-leading research environment with a wide range of research skills training, as well as cutting-edge technical and theoretical expertise.”
The government has ranked the university as third in the UK for research power, while the Shanghai Jiao Tong Academic Ranking of World Universities places it as the 5th in the UK and 44th in the world.
2010 Physics Nobel Prize winners Andre Geim and Konstantin Noveoselov are among the 25 Nobel Prize winners who have worked with the university.
The studentships are open to any area of research for PhD programmes starting in September 2011, and the deadline for applications is April 1.
