Fully funded PhD Scholarship UK 2023 is open now. Due to the UK’s non-association with the Horizon Europe program, the five-year research project TRUE, which was previously chosen for sponsorship by the European Research Council, will now be supported by a UKRI Frontier Research guarantee grant. Applicants want to pursue their PhD can apply for this scholarship. The selected applicant will have a lot of freedom to design their own research agenda within the framework of the larger project and its research goals, which are to:
Examine how deep fakes are viewed by the general public and how this affects how trustworthy people think user-generated evidence is; Develop and validate a scale of trustworthiness for user-generated evidence, identifying the elements that influence how that evidence is viewed in terms of credibility, dependability, and probative value, and contrasting it with other types of evidence from the perspectives of both lay and professional fact-finders.
