Closing Date- 02 Apr 15
The Wellcome Trust invites applications for its doctoral studentships in medical humanities. These enable scholars to undertake full-time research on a medical humanities topic leading to a doctoral degree at a university in the UK or Republic of Ireland. Strong preference is given to applicants intending to make a long-term academic career in the subject.
Applicants should hold a master’s degree in a subject relevant to the medical humanities. Applications must be sponsored by a senior member of the department, unit or institute, or a current or former medical history and humanities grant-holder. Applicants should not already have received support for their doctoral studies.
Awards are for up to three years and include the student’s stipend, conference travel, research expenses, overseas fieldwork, and university and college fees at home level.
