Swansea University Fully-funded PhD Studentship

Swansea University's College of Law invites applications for a three-year postgraduate research studentship in global financial law, leading to the degree of PhD, starting in September 2014.

The successful candidate will work within the Swansea University Centre for Global Legal Priorities, under the supervision of Professor John Linarelli.

Applicants are expected to propose a topic with a connection to the post-crisis regulation of banks and financial markets, with an emphasis on systemic risk and social and economic inequality. 

Due to funding restrictions, this studentship is open to UK/EU students only.

Applicants should have (or be expecting to attain) a Class I or good Class II(i) honours degree or equivalent and should normally also hold a good master's degree, preferably with at least one of these being a degree in law, philosophy, economics, or politics.

This scholarship covers UK/EU tuition fees, plus a maintenance allowance of £13,863 per annum for a maximum of three years.

The scholarship is awarded for one year in the first instance, renewable for a further two years subject to satisfactory progress.

Closing date: 31st May 2014
