Hull University is making £3 million available for 47 students to take PhD scholarships there.

This means successful candidates can look forward to having their tuition and living costs met, worth about £18,000 per annum.

The scholarships aim to attract top-quality scholars to undertake postgraduate research.

Areas covered include the Queen’s Anniversary Prize-winning Wilberforce Institute, logistics and Hull’s City of Culture year.

Students researching the former will study slavery-related prosecution, prevention and punishment besides justice, healing and victims.

The Logistics Institute’s research will look at how best to utilise Britain’s off-shore wind industry production and distribution process.

One of the Institute’s PhD students, Paul Sheehan, 33, said: “Logistics is something you can really get your teeth into and an area which is really expanding rapidly. What attracted me is you can go wherever you want with it.

“Straight away at the Logistics Institute you are working with people who are high up within logistics. I’ve already been working with people from the World Economic Forum and other major people within logistics.

“It is an exciting time for the Logistics Institute and it is great to be doing my PhD within it.”
