WRDTP ESRC PhD Studentships 2019/20

WRDTP ESRC PhD Studentships 2019/20

The White Rose Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP), accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council in 2016, is a collaboration across the social sciences at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan.

WRDTP supports a wide range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary scholarship, promotes and rewards excellence, and research training is delivered through seven Thematic Interdisciplinary Training Pathways:

  1. Cities, Environment, and Liveability (CEL)
  2. Security, Conflict, and Justice (SCJ)
  3. Education, Childhood, and Youth (ECY)
  4. Data, Communication, and New Technologies (DCT)
  5. Wellbeing, Health, and Communities (WHC)
  6. Sustainable Growth, Management, and Economic Productivity (SMP)
  7. Civil Society, Development, and Democracy (CDD)

The DTP is offering a range of social sciences PhD Studentships starting in September/October 2019. Further information can be found here.

WRDTP ESRC PhD Studentships 2019/20

The awards on offer are either/or:

  • +3 programme: funding for a three-year PhD (assumes that a student has already met the majority of the core social sciences research methods training requirements and that the PhD focus is largely on more advanced training)
  • 1+3 programme: an integrated Masters programme precedes the three-year PhD which will deliver the core social sciences research methods training requirements (e.g. MA Social Research)

ALL awards are available for study part-time.

The White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership now invites applications for the following 12 fully funded ESRC WRDTP Collaborative Awards with a variety of non HEI partners.
