Finding A PhD

Searching for PhD research projects can sometimes feel like daunting process. Often, it’s difficult to know where to find a PhD position or where to even start.

To make this searching process as easy as possible for you, we’ve curated a collection of the best places to search for PhD projects. By using our recommended collection, you should hopefully gain a greater insight into where your interests lie and which programme is best suited for you.

Our Comprehensive and Up-To-Date Directory

We can’t create a list of great resources and not include ourselves! At DiscoverPhDs, our primary aim is to connect great students to great PhD projects. To enable this, we provide a comprehensive database of PhD projects offered from universities all across the UK.

We regularly add to our database to ensure you’re getting the latest opportunities and the most relevant information and programme details. On top of this, we’ve created our database to be as easy to use as possible; all our PhD listings provide a direct ‘apply’ link or contact email address of the lead supervisor. This enables you to:

  • Request further information about any aspect of the position,
  • Enquire about the specific applications process,
  • Connect directly with the supervisor

Universities Websites

Search on the website of the universities you are interested in as some many only be listing PhD research projects internally or may link you to other opportunities such as Professional Doctorate Programmes. As examples, have a look at the research pages of The University of Cambridge , Cardiff University , University of Leicester , Sheffield University and The University of Glasgow .

Your Current Supervisor

If you’re currently undertaking a research project or dissertation as part of your undergraduate or master’s degree, it would be a good idea to speak to your current supervisor. Not only would you have already built a good rapport with them, but having worked with you they will have a good idea on what PhD positions would utilise your strengths or best interest you. In fact, a noticeable percentage of past and current PhD students came into their PhD programme because of being recommended by their undergraduate supervisor. Your supervisor will be well-connected – make sure you take advantage of these opportunities.

Tip: Don’t just limit your discussion to your own personal supervisor. All supervisors are within their field of work because they have a natural passion for research and teaching. As such, most supervisors will be more than happy to help any student who wishes to follow in their footsteps and make their own impact.

Postgraduate Events

Nearly all universities hold regular Postgraduate Fairs and Open Days. As part of these events, current postgraduate students may be on hand to share their experiences of their projects and university. This is a fantastic opportunity to not only find out what PhDs the university is offering but to find out more about their facilities, research labs and library collection, etc. Given that you will be heavily relying on these resources during your PhD, it’s important that you know what’s provided by each university. Hearing student stories about what PhD life is really like, what to expect from supervisors and some of the challenges that current students have encountered can be really useful in your decision making process.

Besides the above, career advisers may also be available at these events. Speaking to them will help you understand what you can do with a PhD, whether a PhD is right for you, what degree class you’re expected to hold and how best to prepare for research projects. Seeing as they would have helped many PhD candidates through the decision-making process before, they will provide you with some invaluable insight that you would otherwise be oblivious to.

To help bring all Postgraduate Fairs and Open Days offered across all universities together, we’ve created a helpful Postgraduate Events page which we highly recommend you check out.

Research Councils

Research councils are nationally funded agencies which offer sponsored PhD research projects (also known as a PhD studentship). Different research councils cover different areas of research, these include:

  • The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC),
  • The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC),
  • Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC),
  • The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC),
  • Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).

The GOV.UK website has a full list of nationally-funded research councils available online. You can find further details on these councils on the GOV.UK website.

Although our database includes PhD programmes offered by these research councils, it would be a good idea to regularly browse the website of the ones you are particularly interested in case they list some internal only. These councils play an important role in supporting and encouraging doctoral researchers and they regularly hold calls for applications for PhD funding. If you or your potential supervisor have a PhD project proposal defined but need funding, then applying to these calls may become a key first milestone in your postgraduate research journey.

For example, the EPSRC offers a Doctoral Training Partnership programme in which a research student is given funding to pursue postgraduate study with a research question that aligns with the Councils core engineering and physical sciences themes. These awards often have eligibility criteria linked to them, impacting which postgraduate research students can apply; an international student, for example, may not be able to apply to a certain UK based scholarship scheme but there are several other options that can still help you fund your doctoral research; this may involve taking out a postgraduate loan (or more specifically a postgraduate doctoral loan).

To make this searching process as easy as possible for you, we’ve curated a collection of the best places to search for a PhD. By using our recommended collection, you should hopefully gain a greater insight into where your interests lie and which programme is best suited for you.

Further Resources

As you continue your search of PhD research projects, be sure to check our our PhD advice articles, including how to prepare for your PhD application, and interviews with current and past doctoral students. Many of the people we’ve interviewed have completed degrees within a STEM discipline; they offer a wide range of advice on their individual approaches to applied research and independent study, as well as sharing some the impact their work has had. Many have continued the research of their projects within academia after finishing, whilst some have developed successful careers in industry and business sectors.

It’s worth noting that when you apply to undertake doctoral study, you may first be registered as an MPhil researcher, depending on the specific doctoral programme you apply for, officially become a full PhD student after passing an upgrade viva. At the upgrade stage, some students do decide to graduate with an MPhil research degree rather than pursuing further PhD study however this is less common.

We hope the above list will help you find the perfect PhD position and earn your doctoral degree.

If you have any recommendations besides these resources, please let us know at [email protected] so we can look to add it.

March 2022 Newsletter for PhD Students

Announcements from Vice Provost for Education Karen Detlefsen, Ph.D.

Welcome to this special edition of the VPE newsletter just for PhD students!

2022-2023 PhD Stipend I am happy to announce that the University’s minimum stipend level will increase 4.25% to $ 30,547 for nine months in the 2022-2023 academic year. Some schools and programs provide stipends above the minimum; check with your school to confirm your stipend amount for next year. I am particularly pleased that this is the fourth consecutive annual increase over 4% for minimum stipends, despite the many disruptions to our University operations. These stipend increases demonstrate the University’s strong and continued commitment to our PhD students.

Pilot Program to cover Penn Student Health Insurance Plan for PhD students on medical and family leave I am also very pleased to announce a pilot program, beginning in July 2022, for PhD students whose funding includes health insurance to continue to receive coverage for their individual health insurance while on medical or family leave for one full semester. Students may also petition to be considered for a second full semester of medical leave. We are hopeful that this additional benefit will support students taking a necessary break from their studies. The Penn Student Health Insurance Plan (PSIP) coverage during the fall semester extends from August 1-December 31. PSIP coverage during the spring semester extends from January 1-July 31. 

I am also happy to share with you that the 2022-23 PSIP will include an optional national dental plan. More details about this new benefit will be available later in March. Many thanks to the students on the Student Health Insurance Advisory Committee (SHIAC) who advocated for this additional benefit. The cost of PSIP next year will be $4,029. This price reflects a generous University subsidy of $240 per enrollee , which reduces the cost of the annual premiums for our students.  Many PhD funding packages cover this annual premium.

Resources for PhD students

I want to remind you that the Graduate Student Center’s Academic Policies and Support page for PhD students includes resources you might useful, including the Advising & Mentoring PhD Students Guide , Graduate Group Review Student Feedback Form , Navigating the Academy Programs , and more. The Graduate Group Feedback Form can be used at any time by students to convey — anonymously or not – feedback about your experiences in your Graduate Group. Forms are submitted to the Office of the Provost, not to the Graduate Group. 

In addition, Individual Development Plans (IDPs) are useful tools to help you set goals and stay on track while you are doing research and coursework. IDP s can help you identify, develop, and improve skills oriented toward academic and career goals. Some students at Penn are already required to use IDP s; however, we encourage all students to explore IDP tools. Here are a few to consider:

  • Imagine PhD for students in the humanities and social sciences

Meet the 2024 Intramural Research Fellowship Awardees

The Rep Report: February 2024

February Announcements

February Events

What is the significance of obtaining a grant in the pursuit of a faculty position? This was a popular question at the 2023 fellows’ retreat career discussion led by Natalie Porat-Shliom, PhD, an Earl Stadtman Investigator in NCI’s Center for Cancer Research. Her answer is worth repeating:

“In my perspective, the importance of securing a grant cannot be overstated for several reasons. Beyond merely showcasing your capability to acquire financial support, it also underscores your proficiency in grant writing—an art distinct from manuscript composition. Gaining proficiency in grant writing is a vital component of scientific training that is often underemphasized during postdoctoral training.”

NICHD leadership agrees. In 2018, the NICHD Division of Intramural Research (DIR) launched a competitive research funding opportunity for NICHD postdoctoral, visiting, and clinical fellows: the Intramural Research Fellowship (IRF) . These research fellowships are for NICHD intramural fellows within their second or third year of training to help prepare them for the process of applying for an NIH grant.

This month, we honor those who applied for and received and IRF award for Fiscal Year 2024. Their work exemplifies the scope and impact of NICHD intramural research by postdoctoral fellows.

You too can hone your grant writing skills through workshops and grant application preparation. Several of the February announcements and events are dedicated to grant writing activities, including announcements for the Independent Research Scholars (IRS) Program, the next cycle of NICHD Early Career Awards, and the popular annual NIH Grant Writing Course led by Dr. Paula Gregory.

Before signing off for the month, I’d like to extend the warmest of welcomes to Dr. Megan Bohn , the new NICHD Office of Education Deputy Director. I’ve known Dr. Bohn since my own postdoctoral days at NICHD, and her return to the institute as an expert in science training and career development is a wonderful gain for the program. I’ll keep my words brief here, but please check back for an in-depth introduction to Dr. Bohn in a future issue!

Good morning, and welcome to the Essential California newsletter . It’s Saturday, Feb. 17 . First, some big news. Unlike most Sundays, you’ll be receiving Essential California tomorrow, too. We are finally expanding to be a seven-days-per-week operation, so that you can start every day with the information you need. And now, here’s what you need to know to start your weekend:

  • Half of Republicans say California isn’t really American
  • Take our L.A. Times news quiz . This week, it’s all about a hoax, high-rises and the Happiest Place on Earth
  • And here’s today’s e-newspaper

Start your day right

Sign up for Essential California for news, features and recommendations from the L.A. Times and beyond in your inbox six days a week.

You may occasionally receive promotional content from the Los Angeles Times.

Jazz has a long history in L.A.

In the first half of the 20th century, Central Avenue in South Central L.A. was the heart of the city’s jazz scene. Nightclubs such as Club Alabam brought jazz greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington to the stage.

In the daytime, Club Alabam was a hub of hardworking hoofers and musicians rehearsing for the nightly show. When they performed at night, integrated crowds danced to the sophisticated rhythms of big bands.

Those days are long gone. The number of clubs in the area that offer jazz more than once a week has dwindled to only about a dozen.

But jazz didn’t completely fizzle from L.A.

The jazz scene is evolving and there’s a new generation of players emerging, my colleagues Kailyn Brown and Christopher Reynolds wrote.

They put together a list of 12 vibrant spots where jazz still reigns in L.A. The clubs typically host at least two performances a week and come in a wide variety of flavors, including the chatty lounge feel of the Dresden or the communal feel at the Lighthouse Cafe, where much of the music in “La La Land” was filmed.

Here are just a few:

Catalina Jazz Club

Vocalist and actor John Lloyd Young at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood.

Founded in 1986 by Romanian immigrants Bob and Catalina Popescu, Catalina is the only jazz club in Hollywood. Two of the first artists on the stage were Dizzy Gillespie and Buddy Collette, a mainstay of L.A.’s golden era of jazz on Central Avenue.

To this day, the owners have stuck with the club’s long-standing formula: a snazzy setting for dinner and a steady stream of jazz, usually six nights a week.

Lighthouse Cafe

Jazz guitarist Jacques Lesur plays Monday nights at the Lighthouse Cafe in Hermosa Beach.

“La La Land” gave this venue a global and multi-generational reach. But the Lighthouse’s jazziest days were in the ‘50s and ‘60s, when performers included Miles Davis, Max Roach and Shelly Manne.

These days most of the jazz happens two days a week: Sunday (over brunch, all ages invited) and Monday (jam session, 21 and over).

Pip’s on La Brea

Illustration of Pip's on La Brea, 1356 S. La Brea Ave., Los Angeles, 90019 for the music venue POI.

This popular jazz bar and restaurant hosts live music every night of the week except Monday. It’s the ultimate date-night spot for music lovers and vibe seekers.

While the clientele skews toward a certain age (read: aunties), the combination of live jazz and American comfort food appeals to people of all generations.

See the full list of 12 vibrant spots where jazz still reigns in L.A.

If it doesn't work, the state could see long lines and frustrated voters on Election Day compounded by coronavirus protocols that will make voting in person slower in a year expected to draw a big turnout.

First refuelling for Russia’s Akademik Lomonosov floating NPP

!{Model.Description}

find a phd newsletter

The FNPP includes two KLT-40S reactor units. In such reactors, nuclear fuel is not replaced in the same way as in standard NPPs – partial replacement of fuel once every 12-18 months. Instead, once every few years the entire reactor core is replaced with and a full load of fresh fuel.

The KLT-40S reactor cores have a number of advantages compared with standard NPPs. For the first time, a cassette core was used, which made it possible to increase the fuel cycle to 3-3.5 years before refuelling, and also reduce by one and a half times the fuel component in the cost of the electricity produced. The operating experience of the FNPP provided the basis for the design of the new series of nuclear icebreaker reactors (series 22220). Currently, three such icebreakers have been launched.

The Akademik Lomonosov was connected to the power grid in December 2019, and put into commercial operation in May 2020.

Electricity generation from the FNPP at the end of 2023 amounted to 194 GWh. The population of Pevek is just over 4,000 people. However, the plant can potentially provide electricity to a city with a population of up to 100,000. The FNPP solved two problems. Firstly, it replaced the retiring capacities of the Bilibino Nuclear Power Plant, which has been operating since 1974, as well as the Chaunskaya Thermal Power Plant, which is more than 70 years old. It also supplies power to the main mining enterprises located in western Chukotka. In September, a 490 km 110 kilovolt power transmission line was put into operation connecting Pevek and Bilibino.
