Dear all,

Northumbria University (Newcastle upon Tyne, UK) has multiple fully-funded PhD studentship opportunities available for an October 2019 across a range of human-computer computation and design research topics. Please do forward these to any staff or students who would be interested in applying. Do not hesitate to get in touch (with named contacts on the adverts, or to me) if you have any questions.

We have 7 studentship projects (deadline 25th January 2019) - see links for more information and contact details for relevant supervisors:

In the School of Design we also have a more open call for applications around 8 design research topics (deadline 25th January 2019). Interested applicants are advised to get in contact with John Vines ([log in to unmask]) in the first instance, after which they will be linked with potential supervisors. The eight topics areas are:

Finally, studentships can be funded via the AHRC Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership, which Northumbria is a partner in (deadline 9th January 2019). This funding comes with a number of benefits for applicants, including 4 years of funding (instead of 3), additional resources for training and placements, and both full-time and part-time options. This call is applicant led, where potential students propose their own PhD topic individually or in collaboration with a potential supervisor. Again, please contact John Vines ([log in to unmask]) in the first instance.

Full details for Northern Bridge can be found here: and there is an advert on FindAPhD as well here:
