COMPETITION FOR ESRC STUDENTSHIPS FOR OCTOBER 2017 ENTRY IS NOW OPEN AND THE SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS THURSDAY 1 JUNE 2017 AT 4.00PM
Soc-B studentships are based across social and biological science departments in three centres of excellence in biosocial research: UCL, University of Manchester and University of Essex. Soc-B PhD studentships are four-year (+4) studentships with the first year spent in project rotations and biosocial training before selecting a PhD research topic for years 2-4.
Applicants are expected to have a First Class or Upper Second Class Bachelor’s degree and/or a Master’s degree (preferably with a merit or distinction) in a social or biological science. Candidates must apply to only one of the three participating Soc-B institutions (University College London, University of Manchester or University of Essex).
Please note: You must be ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for the three years prior to the start of the studentship in order to qualify for a full award. EU residents may be considered for fee only awards.
