PhD Scholarship at University of Manchester

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD position in social sciences at University of Manchester. The funding is only available for British students. The deadline for applying is January 26, 2015.

The Sustainable Consumption Institute is offering up to 5 fully funded PhD studentships to outstanding candidates wishing to commence their doctoral studies in September 2015.

The studentships comprise an annual stipend of £ 14,210, payment of fees up to the level charged for UK/EU students and £ 1,000 for fieldwork and conference expenses.

Preference will be given to candidates whose Masters degree involves a significant element of social science research methods training, and those who performed at distinction level (70 % or higher) or equivalent.
