2024 Co-funded and Collaborative Staff Application
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 15 January 2024 2023 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 29 January 2024.
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.
Prospective student candidates will need to complete the UBEL DTP co-funded and collaborative student application form in Survey Monkey Apply by Monday 25 March 2024. The form will allow the student to indicate which project they are applying to. This form will be made available in Monday 9 February 2024 and supervisors will be sent a link for reference.
After the deadline, prospective student submissions will then be sent to supervisors for review following this date. Supervisors will have between 27th March until 10th May 2024 to interview and select a student.
