ScotCHEM, which represents the Scottish academic chemistry research community, has recently announced plans to create an International Graduate School that will combine world-leading research training with industry and international experience.
To celebrate the launch of the ScotCHEM International Graduate School at the University of Edinburgh, the School of Chemistry is offering up to FOUR Prize Scholarships as part of the Principal’s Career Development PhD Scholarships scheme.
Principal’s Career Development PhD Scholarships are usually tenable for three years. Candidates who are awarded a ScotCHEM International Graduate School Scholarship will hold their awards for four years, subject to satisfactory academic progression.
As a member of the ScotCHEM International Graduate School, the successful applicants will have the opportunity to take part in a six month industrial or academic research placement. Study in any area of chemistry will be considered.
Each scholarship covers the UK/EU rate of tuition fee as well as a stipend of £14,000. Subject to satisfactory progress, the scholarships are awarded for three years.
Applicants must be of outstanding academic merit and research potential. Applicants should possess an excellent Bachelor, or Masters degree. Non-native English Language speakers must have a high level of English with a minimum of IELTS 7.0 or equivalent. Applicants must be starting full-time PhD programmes in the School of Chemistry in 2012-13, with start dates between 1 September 2012 and 1 June 2013.
Applicants must have already applied for admission to a full-time PhD research programme of study at the University.
Eligible applicants should complete an online application for the Principal’s Career Development PhD Scholarship by the application deadline of 1 February 2012.
Applicants must also notify the School of Chemistry, by emailing Annette Burgess ([email protected]), of their intention to apply for a ScotCHEM International Graduate School Scholarship, also by Wednesday 1 February 2012.
