Competition for ESRC Studentships is now reopen!
Students can apply to any of the three Universities.
Soc-B studentships are based across social and biological science departments in three centres of excellence in biosocial research: UCL, University of Manchester and University of Essex. Soc-B PhD studentships are four-year (+4) studentships with the first year spent in project rotations and biosocial training before selecting a PhD research topic for years 2-4.
Applicants are expected to have a First Class or Upper Second Class Bachelor’s degree and/or a Master’s degree (preferably with a merit or distinction) in a social or biological science. Candidates must apply to only one of the three participating Soc-B institutions (University College London, University of Manchester or University of Essex).
A full application will include:
- A completed Soc-B CDT
- Two references and your referees’ contact information
Applications should be submitted as a single pdf (except for the Equal Ops form) and be clearly labelled with your full name and Soc-B application by 18 November 2019, please return full applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline for applications is 18 November 2019. Only ONE application for a studentship beginning in January 2020 may be submitted to the Soc-B CDT. Applicants should not submit applications to multiple institutions.
Please note: You must be ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for the three years prior to the start of the studentship in order to qualify for a full award. EU residents may be considered for fee only awards. See ESRC guidelines.
