Job Description

Ulster University

Qualification Type:PhD
Funding for:UK Students, EU Students
Funding amount:Not Specified
Hours:Full Time
Placed On:13th October 2020
Closes:13th January 2021

Ulster University, as a partner in the ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership of Northern Ireland and the North-East (ESRC-NINE), is pleased to offer up to four postgraduate studentships in the following areas of enquiry across the social sciences: 

  • Health, Well-being and Society
  • Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work
  • Politics and International Studies
  • Law
  • Conflict, Security and Justice
  • Management, Business and Economics 

For more information about this competition for postgraduate funding with the ESRC-NINE, please visit the Ulster University website, and the ESRC-NINE website. For information about eligibility criteria, see here.

There are multiple types of award available, including 1+3 scholarships, which will fund a Master’s qualification and a PhD at Ulster University. Candidates must register to complete the PhD at Ulster, but if Ulster doesn’t have an appropriate Master course in the candidate’s area, candidates register for the Masters component at any of the universities in the ESRC-NINE, including Durham University, Queen’s University Belfast, Newcastle University, Northumbria University, Teeside University and the University of Sunderland.

We especially welcome candidates who envisage a collaborative element with a non-university partner in their doctoral studies.

Irrespective of the pathway you take, the ESRC-NINE offers a strong training programme to DTP students, who will acquire a valuable set of skill in the course of their study, equipping them for a high-profile career as social scientists in academia or in other commercial, government, industrial, and third-sector organizations.

A DTP studentship will cover fees and provide £15,009 p.a. in living costs (current rates). DTP students also receive a personal allowance for additional training costs, and can apply for further funding to pursue fieldwork, academic exchange, and collaboration with non-academic partner organisations.

What next? If you are interested in making an application, please contact Dr Shane Mac Giollabhuí ([email protected]) to discuss your candidacy.
