About the award
The College of Social Sciences and International Studies at the University of Exeter is offering up to two ESRC funded studentships as part of the interdisciplinary pathways of the South West Doctoral Training Centre (SWDTC) for entry in 2013/14. Your proposed research must be interdisciplinary with supervisors from two different disciplines.
For eligible students the full time studentship will cover UK/EU fees and an annual Research Council maintenance grant of approximately Â£13,590 (2012/2013 rate) for up to three years (+3 award) or four years (1+3 award).
For the 1+3 studentships you would be required to register initially for the Masters programmes in Security, Conflict and Justice. For the +3 studentships you would be required to register on the PhD Security, Conflict and Justice with the aim of conducting research in an area that aligns with the work of the ESRC.
The Universities of Bristol, Exeter and Bath have created the SWDTC, which draws together the established research excellence of more than 770 academic and research staff at the three institutions. The SWDTC has been accredited by the ESRC and the collaboration at the heart of it was recognised as adding value to the content and delivery of training.
Security, Conflict and Justice
This pathway connects directly with the ESRC’s Research Challenge Security, Conflict and Justice. It recognises that traditional approaches to security studies must now be complemented with new perspectives of issues such as human (in)security more widely, including domestic insecurity and violence, in order to develop better strategies for resolving conflicts and securing social justice. It will train researchers who are equipped with the interdisciplinary skills to impact the research, policy and practice needed to avoid and mitigate security risks.
There are a range of relevant disciplines at Exeter linked to the pathway including:
- Arab and Islamic Studies
- Strategy and Security
