About the Project

To celebrate the University’s research successes, the University of Hull is offering a full-time UK/EU PhD Scholarship or International Fees Bursary for candidates applying for the following project.

Closing date: - 13th March 2017

Studentships will start on 25th September 2017

This research will examine the links between organised crime and contemporary slavery; it is well known that the trafficking of people, drugs and other commodities are linked to organised criminal activity. This studentship will examine the largely unexplored area of the perpetrators of organised crime, it may consider the representations of such offenders and criminal gangs, the policies and strategies employed to disrupt the activities of organised criminal gangs and the threat that such groups pose to the security and well-being of nation states. It will take account of the political, public, and media environment in which such criminal activities take place. This work directly links to the range of research active in WISE and in the Centre for Criminology & Criminal Justice but extends the range and scope through an examination of organised criminal groups and responses to them. We welcome proposals directly relating to these themes.

To apply for these Scholarships please click on the Apply button below.

Full-time UK/EU PhD Scholarships will include fees at the ‘home/EU’ student rate and maintenance (£14,121 in 2016/17) for three years, depending on satisfactory progress.

PhD students at the University of Hull follow modules for research and transferable skills development and gain a Masters level Certificate, or Diploma, in Research Training, in addition to their research degree.

Successful applicants will be informed of the award as soon as possible and by 8th May 2017 at the latest.
