The call for SMMI Studentship funding for 2015/16 is now closed. For further information on the scheme please see the following outline.

Scheme Outline:

SMMI has an annual allocation of funds to support cross-disciplinary PhD research students, ideally spanning supervision in at least two faculties. These studentships are offered competitively across campus and are open to SMMI Members whose proposed project centres on interdisciplinary research. The candidate needs to have a degree with at least a Class 2(i) and be excellent as deemed by the selectors in the Faculty where the student will primarily be based. The SMMI studentships are available to UK, EU or international students and provide funding up to £10k per year for three years, with the supervisors and their faculties finding the rest of the required funding. PhD students should be recruited through open competition using the accepted processes of the host faculty or academic unit. It is anticipated that the SMMI will support up to 6 studentships per year.

Timelines for 2015/2016:

1 December 2015: Deadline for SMMI to receive completed application forms from SMMI members.

December 2015: SMMI Committee will review applications and make conditional awards.

December 2015: Successful SMMI Members will be informed of conditional awards. Release of SMMI funding will be contingent on Supervisors securing the complete funding package and recruiting an excellent student.

The guidance notes and application form can be downloaded below and all completed application forms should be returned as a single pdf file, including all CVs and electronic signatures by 5pm on 1 December 2015.
