ESRC PhD Studentships in the Social Sciences in the Midlands Graduate School. Deadline: 22 January 2020.
The Midlands Graduate School is an accredited Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP). One of 14 such partnerships in the UK, the Midlands Graduate School is a collaboration between Aston University, University of Birmingham, University of Leicester, Loughborough University, University of Nottingham and University of Warwick.
The Midlands Graduate School is looking to recruit top quality social science PhD students to commence study in October 2020 across a range of subjects and interdisciplinary training pathways. Our ESRC studentships – covering fees, a maintenance stipend (subject to eligibility), and support for innovative research training – provide exceptional opportunities for high-achieving and motivated individuals, including opportunities for collaboration.
A Masters degree is not a prerequisite for applying to the Midlands Graduate School DTP, and a number of our studentship awards are specifically ring-fenced for students applying for funding straight from an undergraduate degree.
The MGS offers 17 different training pathways, including Applied Linguistics, Communication & Media, and Political Science & International Relations, among others.
