Applications are now invited for a fully funded four year PhD studentship with integrated teaching certificate.
The University of Manchester has established funding through GCRF for studentships to build connections with countries that are overseas development assistance (OOA) recipients.
The Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) is a £1.5 billion fund announced by the government to support cutting-edge research that addresses the challenges faced by developing countries. GCRF forms part of the UK’s Official Development Assistance (ODA) commitment. ODA-funded activity focuses on outcomes that promote the long-term sustainable growth of countries on the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) list.
