Information for Principal Investigators and Organisations with funding

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

  1. It is free of charge: There are no additional costs for including your Scholar on the Programme.
  2. The HRB strongly encourage applicants who want PhD funding in PHPHSR to include their Scholars 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.
