Themes
Applications are particularly encouraged that will address potential interdisciplinary connections within the broad themes of a) Security and risk; or b) Democratic citizenship. These themes have been selected amongst those making up areas of priority focus for the University of Portsmouth, and are defined in our Research & Innovation Strategy as follows:

Democratic Citizenship
Only active, informed and engaged citizens can fully safeguard democratic and sustainable societies against their many challenges. We will develop critical, multidisciplinary insights on past and present conditions, generating richer and more robust understandings of the contemporary human situation. In communicating these to a variety of audiences, we will build greater awareness of the impact of change and the consequences of conflict over identities and resources. Exploring the development and potential futures of social and institutional structures as well as their implications for human wellbeing and justice, we will work to foster positive cultural and social exchange and engagement.

Security & Risk
Security is an inescapable issue facing society. The security of individuals and societies worldwide is threatened by natural disasters and climate change, by political and criminal violence, conflict, fraud, and other issues, all requiring analysis and interventions to secure peace, prosperity and justice. Our activities will address the challenges of achieving and safeguarding the physical and electronic security of individuals, organisations and societies, and exploring and understanding the tensions and conflicts arising in an interconnected world. We will work to plot responses to unpredictable change, develop strategic decision-making and leadership capabilities, and build understanding of the mechanisms and approaches required for effective, efficient and equitable collective security.

Candidates addressing one of the above themes should set out on their application form, in 200-300 words, specifically how their project will address potential interdisciplinary connections within the chosen theme.
