The Oxford University Centre for Business Taxations offers studentships for those undertaking research degrees leading eventually to a doctorate in the field of taxation.

Studentships
The Centre for Business Taxation is offering up to three studentships for study towards a DPhil at the University of Oxford, commencing in 2012. These studentships are available to students undertaking research related to business taxation, broadly defined, and may be based in any relevant discipline including economics, law, management, or political science.
The level of Studentship offered may vary, but the maximum award covers University and College fees, as well as a maintenance grant equivalent to the level provided to ESRC studentships linked to research grants, which is currently £13,590 per annum (subject to confirmation).

Application procedure
a) Candidates should complete an application form, available below, and return it to the Centre Manager by the closing date, 20 January 2012.
b) All candidates must apply separately for a place on a relevant DPhil programme at the University of Oxford. Candidates should check carefully the closing date for their particular programme.
Informal enquiries can be made to the Centre Director, Professor Michael Devereux, at michael.devereux@sbs.ox.ac.uk. The Centre Manager, Anne‐Marie McBrien, can be contacted on anne‐marie.mcbrien@sbs.ox.ac.uk.
