The University of Hull is a member of the prestigious Economic and Social Research Council White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership - a collaboration between the leading social science departments in the Universities of Bradford, Hull, Leeds, Manchester Metropolitan, Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam and York.
We are now seeking talented students to join us for a world-class start to your research career by undertaking a funded social science Masters and / or PhD degree at Hull.
There are two types of fully-funded PhD studentships available for full or part-time study in three of our leading social science departments: Geography, Geology and Environment, History and Psychology:
Your first year on this programme will be the Taught Masters (MSc) in Social Sciences. The second year onwards is the PhD degree, which involves developing, undertaking and completing a PhD of your own research design, alongside ongoing research training.
This programme is a three-year PhD only. To qualify for this route you will need to have a Masters degree already, or to be able to demonstrate significant social sciences research training skills and experience equivalent to a Masters degree.
To apply for a White Rose studentship, you will need to develop a research proposal with your potential PhD supervisor(s). The proposal must sit within one of the following five, broad research pathways:
Further details on the Pathways can be found on the University of Hull scholarships webpage.
In addition to the Pathway awards, the WRDTP is also offering 4 funded Advanced Quantitative Methods Awards. Priority will be given to those who will be working with large data sets (an ESRC priority).
The WRDTP in partnership with the Stuart Hall Foundation has ringfenced two Pathway studentships for Black British students. Historical inequalities in education have resulted in under-representation of BME communities in academia. The WRDTP is keen to start addressing these issues through this partnership.
You are strongly advised to contact a potential supervisor and to discuss and develop your research proposal, well before you submit an application. Please apply to the relevant Pathway listed on the University of Hull scholarships webpage. Shortlisted applicants will be supported to prepare an application to the DTP.
You can find out more information about these awards, funding and eligibility on the University of Hull scholarships webpage.
Application deadline for applications to the University of Hull 17:00 on 27th January 2021. You are strongly advised to discuss your research proposal with your prospective supervisor before you apply.
