CASE Projects available for 2019 entry

CASE projects involve an internship with an industry partner and additional financial support for the student.

We are inviting applications to the Wanakaset Environmental Research CASE studentship which has become available for 2019 entry.  Candidates who are interested in starting a PhD project in October 2019 but who have missed our normal admissions round, can apply to one of the CASE projects listed below.  The deadline for applications is midday on 28th June 2019.  The successful candidate will be admitted to the DTP and be a full member of the cohort, attending the training programme and other DTP activities.

Applications are now being accepted for this single studentship, please apply via the Courses Open for Studentships page on the university website, and quote studentship code R8_1C.  Please include this Statement of Purpose form with your application.

This studentship is linked to Linacre College.

The projects are listed according to stream.
