2022 Staff Application - Co-funded and Collaborative Studentship Competition
The UCL, Bloomsbury and East London DTP Co-funded and Collaborative Studentship Competition is a two stage process.
At this first stage, one or more academics working in the area of an identified DTP Pathway co-operate with a non-academic partner to put together a proposal for a co-funded or collaborative studentship project by Monday 13 December 2021 23:59.
This project should address a research topic which is of both theoretical and practical significance, and provide opportunities for a funded PhD student to gain first-hand experience of work outside an academic environment. The student is expected to be supported throughout the project by both an academic and a non-academic supervisor.
Each submitted proposal is then assessed by the Co-funded and Collaborative Panel, which decides whether or not an award should be made. Academic colleagues will be informed of the outcome of this stage w/c 17 January 2022.
In the second stage of the process, successful academic colleagues recruit a suitable student for their award, in consultation with the relevant Pathway Leader, who is responsible for assessing the academic strength of candidates.
The projects will be advertised through the institution of the designated lead supervisor (where the award will be held) and through the DTP website. The format of student applications (CVs or other information) and closing dates for receipt are decided according to the timelines of the department concerned. However, the selected student for each award will also need to make an application to the UBEL DTP by 4 April 2022 for consideration by the DTP Board.
The selected student for each of the chosen projects will need to apply to the UBEL DTP via the Survey Monkey Apply portal: the studentship application will be available from 17 January 2022, with an application deadline of 4th April 2022 (23:59).
