This is to let you know that Lancaster University is offering up to 10 PhD Studentships that are open to students from any country (see http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/pgfunding/science.htm).
Lancaster University Research Studentships are for up to four years. They exempt the recipient from paying tuition fees and include an annual living stipend at UK Research Council rates (£13,290 in 2009/10). Each year, recipients will also benefit from a personal research support account of £1500, to use for training and skills enhancement. The closing date for consideration under this studentship scheme is Friday, 17 April 2009.
If you have any highly motivated students who might be interested in applying for a studentship to work on a topic of their choosing, but in the general area of the regulation of root development or nutrient signalling, they should contact me at b.g.forde from lancaster.ac.uk as soon as possible.
