The Cardiff School of Social Sciences, supported by the ESRC Doctoral Training Centre for Wales (Wales DTC) invites applications to a number of fully-funded PhD studentships for the 2018/19 academic year. We have up to 11 fully-funded PhD Studentships available and the School expects to make doctoral studentship awards in the areas of
- Science and Technology Studies
- Social Policy
- Social Work
- Social Care.
The School holds up to 11 awards, available on either a 1+3 or +3 basis. A 1+3 studentship provides funding for four years, completing the MSc in Social Science Research Methods in the 1st year, followed by 3 years research funding for a PhD. A +3 studentship provides funding for the three years research study only.
The Cardiff School of Social Sciences values diversity and equality at all levels, and encourages applications from all sections of the community.
Studentships will commence in October 2018.
ESRC studentships are highly competitive, candidates should have an excellent academic background in the social sciences, holding a 1st or strong upper 2nd class degree; applications from those also holding a Masters degree (preferably an ESRC recognised Masters or an equivalent background in research training) will be considered for a +3 award.
Due to funding restrictions full awards are open to UK Nationals and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements.
