Support Description: PhD research studentships in the Surrey Morphology Group.

Surrey Morphology Group (SMG) is pleased to announce an open competition to apply for a fully funded 3-year postgraduate research studentship (fees and subsistence at Research Council rates) to undertake PhD research in the School of English and Languages, University of Surrey.

The studentships will start in October 2014. Due to funding restrictions, full studentships are only available to Home students (i.e. students from the UK) and (other) EU students who have been resident in the UK for 3 years on 30 September 2014. EU students who have not been resident in the UK for the 3 years preceding the award will be entitled to a Fees Only award. Part-time studentships may be considered under certain circumstances.
Both Home and EU students have to satisfy the standard Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) eligibility criteria. See Annex A of the AHRC Postgraduate Funding Guide for further details:

Applicants must be able to demonstrate how their proposed research fits in with research currently undertaken within the group. Details of our ongoing projects, past research and research outcomes are available from the SMG homepage:

The proposal should be no longer than 2 pages in length, including key references.
