10 Full-Funded ESRC PhD Studentships in the Social Sciences
Anthropology, Cultural Studies, Human Geography, Media and Communications, Socio-legal studies and Sociology
Deadline: 31st January 2014
London Social Science is an ESRC Doctoral Training Centre (DTC), comprising a consortium between Goldsmiths, University of London and Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL). These fully-funded ESRC studentships are available to research students via this DTC. For eligible applicants, the studentships may cover three or four years of tuition fees, and provide a tax-exempt annual living allowance (currently Â£15726, including London Weighting). The studentships fund a combination of research training plus research for a PhD, depending on the applicantâs background.
The research disciplines for these PhDs, available within our DTC, are as follows:
- Anthropology (Goldsmiths)
- Cultural studies (Goldsmiths)
- Human geography (QMUL)
- Media and communications (Goldsmiths)
- Socio-legal studies (QMUL)
- Sociology (Goldsmiths)
Our DTC especially encourages PhD applications for research which will involve the student in being trained in, and then applying, advanced quantitative methods (AQMs). We also strongly encourage research proposals which involve two-way knowledge exchange and collaboration with an external partner (private, public or third sector).
Candidates must have, or expect to obtain, a First or a high Upper Second Class Honours undergraduate degree, and/or a Master’s degree, in a relevant discipline.
