MPhil/PhD studentships available in PSI and FABE

The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment (FABE) at the University of Westminster is offering three MPhil/PhD studentships, to start in September 2017. The scholarships are open to candidates with Home/EU fee status only. They are full-time only for three years and include an annual stipend of £16,000 and a Home/EU fee waiver. As part of the studentship, candidates will be required to undertake up to six hours teaching per week. The final university deadline for full applications is 5pm on 10 February 2017.

PSI’s mission is to inform a more sustainable society, particularly in the context of climate change. PSI is a research centre in FABE, and applications for doctoral study in PSI are eligible for this competition. We wish to encourage and actively support high quality MPhil/PhD applications in areas that align with those of our researchers. To achieve this, we are adding an interim stage into the process. If you are interested in PhD study on sustainability and climate change in PSI, please:

1. Assess whether a PSI researcher’s interests and expertise align with your own;
2. Confirm that you are eligible for Home/EU fee status;
3. If the answer to 1 and 2 is ‘yes’, please email the relevant PSI researcher(s) as soon as possible with a 300-word abstract of your PSI-relevant idea (including context, question and method) and a one-page CV;
4. Finally, take a look at the University of Westminster application process for these awards, particularly noting that applicants will be required to develop an outline research proposal.

We will contact potential applicants within one week of receipt of abstracts (longer over the winter break period) to confirm whether we can support your full application.

FABE conducts a wide variety of research activities relating to all aspects of architecture and the built environment, and we also wish to encourage applications to FABE. If you are interested in PhD study in FABE, please see further details here.
