The Faraday Institute is offering up to three PhD student bursaries to be taken up within a UK University during the academic year 2011-2012. Bursaries are a maximum of £3500 per annum and are renewable on an annual basis up to a maximum of three years in total, dependent on performance and outputs. The research topic under investigation must be within the domain of science and religion. Those who receive a bursary are expected to attend at least one Faraday Course, payable by the Institute, and to present their research findings at a Faraday staff meeting in Cambridge at some point during their bursary year.

Applications should include a c/v containing the names of three referees, one of whom should be the PhD supervisor, a summary (1-2 pages) of the research project and a covering letter explaining how the project fits with the aims and ethos of The Faraday Institute. Please send applications to Mrs Polly Stanton at ps400@cam.ac.uk by Friday 5th August. It is possible that applicants may be called to Cambridge for interview.
