Doctoral Studentship Scheme

The Department of Economics is pleased to introduce a new scheme to help the funding of graduate students with Oxford D.Phil. status, or those who will hold that from 1 October 2002. The department is initially offering up to four such awards.

Each award offers funding of £8,000 per annum for two years. A condition of the award is that holders will be required to undertake teaching duties for the department or a college of four hours per week during term, as specified by the Head of Department (or Senior Tutor in respect of the college-associated studenships). From 1 October 2002, both Lincoln College and University College have expressed their willingness to participate in the department's scheme. Where a fees-only award permits their doing so, successful candidates may simultaneously hold a doctoral studentship.

Applicants should send three copies of their CURRICULUM VITAE and the names of two referees, one of whom must be their doctoral supervisor, to the Administrator, Department of Economics, Manor Road Building, Oxford OX13 UQ (e- mail:, by 14 May. Applicants should ensure that their referees write directly to the department by the closing date.
