Additional funding has become available to support a cohort of ESRC-funded students to undertake placements with business or industry partners, as part of the National Productivity Investment Fund.
Current or recently completed ESRC-funded PhD students (NWDTC or NWSSDTP) can apply to undertake a NPIF Placement. A placement does not need to directly relate to your PhD topic, however a case must be made for how the placement will support your personal and/or career development. Placements may last from one to six months and must be with business or industry partners.
Please see the paperwork below for the NPIF Placement Scheme:
The deadline for applications to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org is 5pm on the 31st May. Approved placements must be completed by March 2020.
