The University of Memphis is ranked among the top tier research institutions in the United States where our excellence is proven through hard work and impactful science products.
CAESER will be offering 20 – 25 doctoral positions in Fall 2023.
You will receive up to 4 years of support whereby your tuition is fully covered, and you’ll receive a 12-month stipend of $2,100/month.
We support your research! A pool of approximately $150,000 will be allocated annually to our grad students’ research.
From listening to a band on iconic Beale Street, to seeing a show at the historic Orpheum Theatre, or enjoying a concert on the lawn at the Overton Park Shell amphitheater, music is one of many reasons to enjoy life in Memphis.
Memphis is one of the largest cities in the U.S., yet it maintains that small town feel. It is home to the Memphis Tigers (go TIGER BLUE!), a remarkable variety of food and breweries, and greenlines that connect you throughout the area. Memphis is quintessential southern hospitality…it doesn’t get any friendlier elsewhere! Memphis is also a melting pot of many cultures, represented by its citizenry, and in return creates a huge support mechanism for students attending the University of Memphis.
When we talk about best bang for your buck, our cost of living is hard to beat. In other cities, you must make more money to have the same basic services Memphis offers. For example, your 12-month stipend as a doctoral student is $2,100. If attending UCLA in California, you must receive almost $4,800/month because their cost of living is so high. Therefore, in Memphis your dollar goes a lot further: better living, affordable food, larger buying power.
