School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Postgraduate Research Studentships 2014/15
Closing Dates: Please see below
The highly rated School of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering invites applications for a limited number of 3 year research studentships commencing October 2014. Our main research activities are in the research areas of Aerospace & Manufacturing, Clean Energies and Advanced Materials and Processing.
At present the School has a combination of DEL core and Strategic Priority studentships advertised soon. DEL studentships are only available to UK nationals or EU nationals who have lived in the UK for over 3 years (EU nationals not resident in the UK are only eligible for the fees element). Candidates meeting the DEL funding criteria should indicate this on each application.
All the studentships provide fees and a maintenance tax free grant of £13,590 (to be confirmed) in 2013/2014. For further details on eligibility for funding and useful information for prospective research students please read the information at http://www.qub.ac.uk/home/Research/PostgraduateCentre/.
Applicants should hold or expect to hold a 2.1 Hons (or equivalent) degree in a relevant discipline. Applicants are advised to make a separate application for each project that they are interested in. Applications will be considered on a competitive basis with regard to the candidate’s qualifications, skills, experience and interests, together with the available funding mechanisms.
OTHER PROJECTS MAY BECOME AVAILABLE DURING THE YEAR, SUBJECT TO FUNDING
Please note that the School also accepts applications from self-funded students. Self-funded students are responsible for the payment of full tuition fees (at either UK or international rates) and the covering of all living costs.
Applications are invited to be made electronically through the Queen’s online application portal at http://go.qub.ac.uk/pgapply
