PhD studentship opportunities

As part of its commitment to developing mental health research capacity, the IoMH has established three PhD studentships for entry in the 2019/20 academic year.

Successful studentships 

The IoMH have successfully awarded 2019/20 PhD Studentships to fund three proposals that support interdisciplinary mental health research.

The IoMH will take an active role in supporting the supervisors and PhD students receiving these studentships, as well as in publicising the outputs resulting from the research.
