  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Monday, March 30, 2020
  • Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)
    Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

Project Description

It is anticipated that the PhD will employ qualitative or mixed methods to explore this topic, although this expectation is not prescriptive and we are open to receiving proposals to explore this area with quantitative methods. The PhD is linked to the SIPHER research project, more details of which can be found at the consortium website: https://sipher.ac.uk/

SIPHER involves working closely with its three policy partners: the Scottish Government, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, and Sheffield City Council. The PhD research should link to one or more of these policy partners. In terms of its substantive policy focus, SIPHER is exploring the following policy areas: public health (all three partners); inclusive growth (all three partners); public mental health (Scottish Government); housing (Greater Manchester Combined Authority); and Adverse Childhood Experiences (Sheffield City Council). The PhD proposal should focus on one or more of these policy areas. Applicants should be willing to spend time working in policy partner organisations (and experience of working in policy settings is desirable, although not essential, and should be highlighted in applications) and must be willing to travel between Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester and Sheffield in order to engage with SIPHER’s policy partners and to participate in SIPHER meetings and activities.

Funding Notes

Home/EU tuition fee will be covered plus a full stipend which will be equivalent to the RCUK rate.
