[PhD Degree] The Open University Full-time funded PhD Studentships - School of Physical Sciences in UK, 2019 (Fully Funded)

The Open University (OU) is a public distance learning and research university, and one of the biggest universities in the UK for undergraduate education. The majority of the OU's undergraduate students are based throughout the United Kingdom and principally study off-campus; many of its courses (both undergraduate and postgraduate) can also be studied anywhere in the world. There are also a number of full-time postgraduate research students based on the 48-hectare university campus where they use the OU facilities for research, as well as more than 1000 members of academic and research staff and over 2500 administrative, operational and support staff.

The School of Physical Sciences, STEM Faculty, invites applications for full-time PhD studentships for an October 2019 start; projects are divided into different categories based on the disciplines and the range of backgrounds expected from applicants:
  • Physics
  • Physics Education
  • Astronomy
  • Planetary and Space Science
  • Space Instrumentation
There are likely to be at least 10 full-time PhD studentships available, funded by STFC and the OU.
