The AHRC-funded SWW DTP2 is committed to developing creative approaches across disciplinary and interdisciplinary research that will develop scholars, researchers and professionals who are flexible and able to respond to both fast-moving research and industry environments.

SWW DTP2 researchers will be equipped for a wide range of careers through the acquisition of research-based, employability, entrepreneurial and interpersonal skills that are vital to the 21st-century knowledge economy.
SWW DTP2 offers joint supervision arrangements between its consortium institutions. Our students are provided with unrivalled access across institutional boundaries to the most relevant cutting-edge expertise on offer across our consortium, ensuring an exceptional breadth and depth of coverage for your project.
Successful applicants will have their fees paid and receive a maintenance stipend to cover living expenses, where eligible. Studentships are for three years and 8 months as standard, or part-time equivalent. SWW DTP2 aims to award at least 3 of this year’s studentships to applicants from BAME backgrounds.
There are two routes for applicants, the ‘student-led’ competition (where you propose your own research project) and the Collaborative Doctoral Awards (where you help shape a project proposed by experienced academics working with non-HEI partners). Find out more about the studentship types.
Our application system is now open and closes at 11.59pm on Monday 25th January 2021.
