About Anglia Ruskin University:
Our vibrant, modern University is gaining prominence both nationally and internationally and we have ambitious plans for our future. Our main campuses in the cities of Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough have been transformed with major capital investments. With an annual turnover of £200m and over 39,000 students, we are a major force for higher education in the East of England.
About the role:
The studentship will attract an annual tax-free stipend of £15,000 for up to 3 years, subject to satisfactory progress and will cover the UK/EU tuition fees. Applications from non-UK/EU students are welcome, but studentships for these students will only cover tuition fees up to the value of UK/EU tuition fees (currently £4,500) and students will be liable for the remainder. As part of the studentship the successful candidate would be expected to undertake up to six hours teaching or other research or administrative support per week and make a general contribution to activities of the Department.
The candidate will be based in LAIBS and supervised by Ruth McNally, LAIBS Professor of Technological Innovation and Social Change, and Professor Patricia Schofield, Deputy Dean for Research in the Faculty of Health, Social Care and Education, and will be expected to enrol in the PhD programme in September 2016, completing their studies in August 2019.
