PhD Bursaries in Accounting, Economics, Finance and Management

Updated: 2 months ago
Location: Bristol, ENGLAND
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 19 Jul 2017

The School of Economics, Finance and Management at the University of Bristol is pleased to invite applications for PhD bursaries in Accounting, Economics, Finance and Management. Successful applicants will study for a PhD, receive a contribution towards the cost of full-time PhD study, and undertake teaching duties within the School’s teaching programmes.

The awards will be for three-and-a-half years, starting in autumn 2017. For a successful applicant, the scheme will provide a sum equivalent to the current home/EU research student fee for a research student in the School, together with a stipend and teaching income. The combination of the latter two will be approximately £16,000 per annum at current pay rates, paid in instalments. Up to ten PhD bursaries may be awarded, where this figure is a total across the School’s disciplines.

Award-holders will be required to teach around 50-90 contact hours each year and will also be expected to undertake marking/grading duties. Over the teaching year, the total workload is likely to correspond to around 250 hours, where this figure includes contact hours, time allocated to teaching preparation, and marking duties. Awards will be renewable at the end of each year, subject to satisfactory teaching performance, up to a total of three-and-a-half years of funding.

Applicants should hold, or be close to completing, a Masters degree at distinction/merit level (or equivalent qualifications) in a relevant discipline. There are no predetermined research topics, but applicants will need to prepare a research proposal which lies within the interests of one or more potential supervisors within the School.

A wide range of further information about the School, including details of faculty members and courses offered, can be found on the School website.
