The University of Edinburgh PhD Interdisciplinary Research Training Studentship 2017

The School of Social and Political Science at the University of Edinburgh is advertising a studentship to support a four-year (1+3) PhD programme to study the role of interdisciplinarity in training the next generation of researchers.

The study will examine the range of interdisciplinary experiences and environments offered by the Centres for Doctoral Training. The study will develop a series of case studies to assess the influence that interdisciplinary CDTs are having on the research community and other stakeholders.


The studentship will cover fees (at the UK/EU rate) and an annual stipend of £14,000 from September 2017.


Candidates from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Prospective candidates are expected to have an excellent undergraduate degree in either the social (e.g. sociology, anthropology, education etc.) or natural sciences (e.g. chemistry, computer science, biology etc.) and a strong interest in and/or experience of interdisciplinary research.

Note that we are only able to offer fees at the UK/EU level; non UK/EU applicants must be able to fund the additional fees at the international level.
