University funds 40 new PhD studentships
The University has announced funding for 40 new PhD studentships across the campus.
Awarded by the Graduate School, the studentships span all six research challenges at the University, with every academic school benefitting from the funding. Ten individual studentships have been granted, with the remaining 30 broken down into six mini Centres for Doctoral Training, each with five posts.
Professor Andrew Dainty, Director of the Graduate School, said: “This is a major financial investment by the University and underlines its commitment to supporting and developing doctoral research at Loughborough.”
