PhD position Computational Sociology

Departmental PhD Scholarship

The department is offering one three year PhD Scholarship which provides £3,000 per annum towards fees and an annual stipend of £9,000. In order to be eligible, candidates must meet the following criteria:

• Home/EU fee status.
• Intending to start their PhD in January, April, July or October 2009.
• For each intended start date, in order to be considered for the scholarship the candidate must have provided all relevant documentation to satisfy conditions of offer (and otherwise completed all application procedures) by a date approxmately two months prior to arrival. These dates are therefore 1st November 2008, 1st February, 1st May and 1st August 2009. There is no separate application process for the scholarship and all candidates who satisfy these conditions will be considered.
• Submission of a two A4 page research proposal providing as much detail as possible about the intended research (summary of existing knowledge, research question, intended methods and so on). This proposal will form a key part of the assessment process for the scholarship and the topic of the research must be clearly relevant to the expertise of one or more members of the department who will be asked to supervise the successful applicant.
• Good Masters level qualification in a relevant social science with a recognisable research methods component.

In order to be considered for this scholarship, please apply in the normal way for one of the start dates above, providing all requested material (including research proposal) by the relevant deadline. The department will consider all eligible candidates as soon as possible after each deadline and inform the successful candidate. The department reserves the right not to award the scholarship if no sufficiently well qualified candidate presents themselves.
