To support our research effort on the impact of graphene and 2D materials on human health, we are keen to support application for PhD studentships in Occupational/Environmental Health funded by the Colt Foundation. Please do get in touch for further details on application and potential projects.

The Foundation awards Fellowships each year to persons who are qualified in science or medicine who are carrying out research within the area of occupational and environmental health at a UK university. The Fellowship is normally for three years and the research is expected to lead to a PhD degree.

The application will include an outline of the proposed research which demonstrates the occupational content of the work, a CV, a detailed letter of support from the proposed supervisor and the contact details of two referees. The application must be submitted by the student personally and not by their supervisor on their behalf, although it is expected that the supervisor will have an input to ensure that the project can lead to a successful PhD. Fellowships are awarded in competition and are a personal award to the student, and the outline must therefore contain sufficient detail to enable the Selection Panel to determine that the work has been well-designed, that the work is worthwhile and can be completed in the three-year period, and to enable the Panel to decide which students should be interviewed. The stipend rate for the first year is £14,000 (£16,000 inside London), rising with UK inflation for the following two years. Payments will include UK/EU fees and overseas candidates applying would be expected to meet the difference in UK/EU and International rates. A sum to cover research expenses will also be awarded. The grant does not attract any taxation. 

The 2018 campaign is now closed (closing date for receipt of applications was 1st September 2017). We are therefore looking for candidates for the 2019 Campaign (submission Sept 2018, interview Nov 2018, starting date if successful Jan 2019).
