Enhanced four year postgraduate studentships starting in October 2014, will once again be awarded by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, one of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts. Each of 6 supervisors will select a candidate who will then compete at interview for one of up to three Sainsbury PhD Studentships. Interviews will be held in London on Friday, 21 March 2014. It would be expected that the studentship holder spend six months during their 3rd or 4th year at another university/institute to gain additional experience. Please note that students cannot apply to their home institution.
