I was job searching on indeed.co.uk once and found myself up in front of the Medical Research Council *shrug* Maybe try that way or directly email staff with your research interests? Going through the RA route is sneaky good too. Good luck! x
Ahaha, that’s somewhat serendipitous! I have emailed the admissions department of my chosen school with a message like ‘yo I want to research this, do you know where I can get money without selling a kidney or two’ so maybe they’ll be able to assist. I do have a hunch that funding might be somewhat limited as my chosen field isn’t like, y’know, neuroscience or anything useful. We’ll see!

ask thatlittleegyptologist! Lottie’s doing her PhD right now.
Firstly, that is a URL that I am following immediately, and secondly, I have sent a tiny message! Hopefully I am not intruding, oh no.

it’s worth talking to admissions at the dept youre applying to, in mine they chose a selection of applications to send to erc so you applied to the dept first
Aye, I’ve sent an email to them which essentially says ‘so. Funding. Funding, funding, funding. How ‘bout that funding, hmm?’ Hopefully they’ll get back to me and the veil of confusion can be somewhat lifted.

Masters or PhD? ESRC or AHRC? You might be too late for the main open competitions. They finished last month for the ESRC.
Master’s, and more likely AHRC, although I’m about as good at navigating their website as Odysseus was at navigating, erm, anything. I also feel like they would be more tailored towards lengthy research projects, which obvs an MA ain’t. Thanks!
