GCRF PhD Studentships

GCRF PhD Studentships

Coventry University have launched a suite of fully funded PhD studentship opportunities that support the Global Challenges (GCRF) and UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) supports innovative research that responds to emerging challenges across the globe. Not dissimilar to the key areas established under the UN Sustainable Development Goals framework, the focus lies in research which can create new solutions that will have significant impact on people’s lives.

The studentships have been designed by leading researchers from across Coventry University. The interdisciplinary projects will be supervised by team members from more than one of our Research Centres, covering a breadth of disciplines and research areas.

We have a network of 14 Research Centres that collaborate locally, nationally and globally to carry out our multidisciplinary and challenge-led research. All of our centres are committed to achieving impact and producing stellar outputs.

The studentships will commence in September 2020 and are open to UK/EU/International graduates who meet the stated Coventry University Research Programme eligibility criteria.
