The Higher Education Academy is inviting bids from UK higher education institutions to host one or more doctoral studentships for the academic year 2012-13.
The Doctoral Programme forms part of the HEA's strategy to undertake a significant and extensive study to develop pedagogical knowledge and evidence based practice in Higher Education. Five doctoral studentships are available in the coming academic year.
Calls open today and the closing date for submissions is 5pm on 31 August 2012.
Applications should relate to discipline-specific learning and teaching research or to interdisciplinary/generic pedagogical studies. They should show a clear benefit to either practice or to policy on practice.
Applications should be aligned with one or more of the HEA's themes: employability, assessment and feedback, flexible learning, internationalisation, retention and success (including widening access, gender, and transition issues), reward and recognition of teaching, education for sustainable development.
