Economic & Social Research Council Doctoral StudentshipsHaving won a coveted place in the national network of training centres accredited by ESRC, King’s Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Centre (KISS-DTC) is awarding a number of ESRC-funded postgraduate research studentships to support doctoral research and training in the social sciences at King’s.Deadline for the next round of studentships is 17:00GMT 1 February 2012. This deadline is absolute.
EligibilityESRC studentships are available from the KISS-DTC for UK and EU students who meet residency requirements set out by the ESRC. Please consult the ESRC Postgraduate Funding Guide for full details on residential eligibility requirements.ESRC studentship funding is highly competitive. In view of the limited number of awards and the very high standard of applications received, successful applicants are likely to have a very good first degree (BA or BSc Honours or equivalent), at first class standard (or upper second class with clear evidence of first class work), and typically also an appropriate Masters degree (at distinction or at least high merit level) and/or another appropriate qualification, such as prior professional or work-related expertise, relevant to your proposed area of study.
Subject AreasStudentships will be available to students wishing to undertake an MPhil/PhD research degree programme within one of the following 15 KISS-DTC research theme panels:
- Theme 1: Genes, Environment & Public Health (GEP)
- Theme 2: Health Practices & Understandings (HPU)
- Theme 3: Health Policy, Effectiveness & Evaluation (HPE)While interdisciplinarity is a hallmark of research at King’s and we are keen to support social science research at the interfaces with the humanities, with the medical sciences, and with the natural and mathematical sciences, ESRC studentship funding is only available for projects that fall substantially (>66%) within the broad social and behavioral science remit of the ESRC. There is further guidance available HERE.· Up to 2 studentships will be available for students whose research projects involve Advanced Quantitative Methods. If you feel that your research project will include a strong quantitative methods focus please make this clear within your application (via the ‘Research Proposal’ section of the Case for Support Research Degree Programmes form).·
