Information for Principal Investigators and Organisations with funding

The SPHeRE PhD Programme provides a national training facility in PHHSR. It is open to the best scholars regardless of institution or funding source.

  1. It is free, there are no additional costs for including your student on the Programme.
  2. The HRB strongly encourage applicants who want PhD funding in PHHSR to include their students on SPHeRE.
  3. Structured PhD training as part of a cohort is now considered superior to the traditional model of individual training with bespoke modules.
  4. Inclusion on SPHeRE opens up many training, supervision and networking opportunities.


We have created a SPHeRE Information Package for Principal Investigators, Employers and other organisations with funding for a PhD student.
