Description:

Applications are invited for PhD studentships in speech science at Newcastle University. We welcome applicants who are interested in all aspects of speech perception and production. Note that eligibility for these awards is restricted to EU citizens. Studentships, to start in October 2020, will be awarded via open competition for two doctoral training partnerships:
- AHRC Northern Bridge Consortium, deadline Monday 13th January 2020.
- ESRC Northern Ireland and North East Doctoral Training Partnership (NINEDTP), deadline Friday 17th January 2020.

Please contact Ghada Khattab, Jalal Al-Tamimi or Laurence White if you are interested in their broad research areas, as follows.

The AHRC Northern Bridge Consortium for Doctoral Training Partnership (NBCDTP) offers tuition fees and maintenance funding for 42 months (http://www.northernbridge.ac.uk/). Award-holders may extend their studentship to pursue an approved research training programme or to undertake a placement by a further 6 months, and successful applicants can apply for additional funding during their studentship to support their research costs and individual training needs. In addition to the standard PhD pathway, students can apply under the collaborative doctoral pathway, through which applicants develop a research project in collaboration with a partner organisation, and spend a substantial portion of their doctoral study at the partner organisation.

The ESRC Northern Ireland and North East Doctoral Training Partnership (NINEDTP) offer +3, +3.5, 1+3 and, for Language Based Area Studies only, 2+3 awards (https://www.ninedtp.ac.uk/). The awards cover tuition fees and maintenance for the duration of the degree. Award-holders may also apply for research training support grants, internships and placements, and overseas fieldwork and difficult language training, as well as overseas institutional visits. However, these need to be laid out clearly at the application stage and are considered on a case-by-case basis. In addition to the standard PhD pathway, students can apply under the collaborative doctoral pathway, through which applicants develop a research project in collaboration with a partner organisation.
