The University of York is offering an ESRC PhD scholarship for a UK/EU student to start in Autumn 2012 on a 3-year or 1+3-year programme.

The latter includes funding for a one-year research-based masters degree course, prior to three years of PhD study. Further information can be found on our website:

We would be interested in applications from students wishing to work on a project in science education. Interested students should apply as soon as possible, as they have to have an offer of a PhD place before they can apply for the scholarship. The closing date for scholarship applications is 3 February 2012.

We are also offering an Anniversary PhD scholarship to mark the University’s 50th anniversary. This is also open to any UK/EU student. The closing date for applications is 23 April 2012. Further details are also on the web page above.
