This will be awarded in August 2011 to the best applicant to have received an offer of a place but have no alternative funding. Please note that students can only apply for a fee waiver scholarship if they have been offered a place to study for an MPhil/PhD in the Department of Sociological Studies. To make an application to do an MPhil/PhD please go to the following link. You can apply for postgraduate study using our online application form. It is a quick and easy process. Your application can be with us and considered by an academic department within 24 hours. Please note that research students are normally registered for the degree of MPhil first. This allows us to ensure that your research is progressing well before you are upgraded to the full PhD. If you are a graduate in Medicine and wish to apply for an MD research degree, you will need to apply via a different route. To make an MD research application, please visit the School of Medicine & Biomedical Sciences website.

Three PhD Studentship at University of Sheffield, UK: Energy and Environment

The University´s interdisciplinary Energy and Environment theme addresses the international scientific consensus of rapid and globally damaging environmental change driven by natural resource demand and greenhouse gas emissions. This network forms one strand of our commitment to address the imperative to adapt the way humans capture and utilise energy, manage waste, do business and govern themselves to mitigate and manage the impacts of environmental change. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) of CO2 underground is now recognised as a major tool we have for tackling environmental climate change in the short to medium term. The Deep Carbon network will focus on this by building new physics technologies using muon particle detection, needed to monitor what happens to the carbon placed underground, on new geo-physical and engineering models for CO2 storage, needed to optimise selection of suitable deep sites, and new international governance structures, required to underpin legal aspects of safe carbon storage. Award details: A network of three PhD scholarships, one each in Physics, Engineering and Law, is being funded by the University for 3 years, providing a stipend at the standard Research Council rate (£13,590 in 2011-12), UK/EU fees and a research training grant of £1,000 p.a.

  • Academic requirements – applicants should have, or expect to achieve, a first or upper second class UK honours degree or equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK in an appropriate area of study.
  • Allowed study options – applicants should be registering on their first year of study with the University for 2011-12 on one of the selected PhD projects listed below.
