Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy. UCL's Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (STEaPP) is offering several opportunities for doctoral study, including an EPSRC PhD Studentship.
The PhD project’s main focus will be on conceptualising, from a theoretically constructivist perspective, the making of EU foreign policy and to apply and test this on selected case studies of EU policy vis-à-vis countries in three sets of cases.
Background. Our research group researches the impact of a wide range of population level preventative policies (such as pricing and taxation policies for foods, tobacco and alcohol; regulation to restrict unhealthy products) on non-communicable diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, respiratory diseases and cancer.
How are academic science and engineering deployed and used in policy practice? This EPSRC studentship is aimed at delivering a long-term programme of research investigating different sites of policy practice where scientific, technical, engineering and mathematical expertise and evidence are used in policy making.
