3-year full-time PhD Studentship in Sociology
Goldsmiths, University of London - Department of Sociology
The Department of Sociology at Goldsmiths is pleased to announce one 3-year PhD studentship in sociology, available from October 2010 or January 2011.
The studentship is open to home and overseas applicants, and covers fees and an annual stipend at the standard UK Research Council level (currently £13,590 per annum).
The studentship will be awarded to an exceptional candidate whose profile has the potential to enhance the Department's overall research and/or make a significant contribution to the work of a research group within the Department. Research in the Department is focused in six clusters:
* Race, Religion, Ethnicity and Nationalism
* World Cities, Economies and Social Exclusion
* Gender and Social Life
* Politics, Rights and Globalisation
* Life-sciences, Medicine, Technology and Health.
You are advised to consult our staff pages to identify a potential supervisor whose research is closely relevant to your area of interest. For individual staff expertise, please visit the staff web pages at http://www.goldsmiths.ac.uk/sociology/staff/.
Applicants should hold, or expect to have attained, a Master's degree (distinction or merit) by the time the studentship commences. A Master's degree in methods of social research is not a requirement, but would be particularly desirable. As part of the studentship, the successful candidate will be expected to carry out light teaching and/or administrative duties, normally in years two and three.
Applications should be sent by e-mail to Dr Monica Greco, Postgraduate Convenor (
), and should consist of a short covering letter, a research proposal (maximum 2,000 words) and a full CV, including the names of two academic referees.
Application deadline: 21 July 2010
Interview date: week commencing 2 August 2010
