PhD studentships - applications open 28th September 2020

Our new PhD studentships will enable high quality graduates to develop the skills to build an independent career in academic research related to one of our priority areas.

We provide grants of up to £100,000 normally for up to 3 years, to support course fees, living costs, and research costs.

Research projects should aim to have clinical impact and a stated intention of disseminating the results of the work. Our emphasis is on the treatment of people with spinal cord injury which is non-progressive and we expect proposals to have this as their primary focus.

We accept applications from international students, but require that the host institution be based in the UK. We cover course fees up to the  UK level. Note that due to the nature of our fundraising efforts, some funding may be restricted to particular institutions. All applications will be assessed on research method, feasibility and clinical impact by our independent Scientific Advisory Board.

Application forms will be made available on this page from 28th September 2020. For more information in the meantime, please contact Derek Cutler, Research Grants Manager: [email protected] 


Deadline for submission of applications: Monday 30th November
Interviews to be held: February 2021
We expect to make final funding decisions in March 2021
