Oxford - NaturalMotion Graduate Scholarship in Zoology x 2

The Department of Zoology has recently established fully-funded ‘NaturalMotion’ graduate scholarships spanning all areas of the department’s research activity. The awards may be made in partnership with a college. There is no separate application procedure for these scholarships. All applications to the DPhil in Zoology programme will automatically be considered.

This year we are able to offer two Oxford NaturalMotion Graduate Scholarships in Zoology, which has been made possible by funding from participating colleges, the University and through the success of one of the Department of Zoology's previous graduate students, Torsten Reil, who founded NaturalMotion Ltd. NaturalMotion Ltd develops computational methods for animating movement, as used in Hollywood films and computer games. Preference will be given to projects which involve the application of computational methods to biological questions.

One of these scholarships will be tenable at Lady Margaret Hall and named the Oxford-Lady Margaret Hall-NaturalMotion Graduate Scholarship. All eligible applicants will be considered for this scholarship, regardless of which college (if any) you state as your preference on the graduate application form. However, successful applicants will be transferred to Lady Margaret Hall in order to take up the scholarship.

These scholarships are open to Home/EU applicants only and cover university fees, college fees and a grant for living costs of at least £14,553.

Applications are made online using the standard University application form available from 1st September 2017. All applications to the DPhil in Zoology will be automatically considered for this scholarship. The closing date is 19th January 2018.
