Issued: Mon, 28 Feb 2011 16:10:00 GMT
Deadline for applications: 15 April 2011
Eligibility: UK and EU nationals
The University of Glasgow’s School of Social and Political Sciences is pleased to announce the availability of ESRC-funded PhD studentships in Politics and International Relations beginning in September 2011. These studentships are offered as part of the new ESRC recognized Scottish Doctoral Training Centre (DTC). These awards will replace previous ESRC funded PhD studentships, including the open competition.
The Scottish DTC in Politics and International Relations will be governed by representatives from the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow and St Andrews. Although awards will be shared among the three universities, interested applicants should apply directly to the university where they believe their research interests are best represented in staff research activity. Awards will be determined by the governance committee representing the three universities.
Candidates may apply for two types of studentships:
1. 1+3 awards: Students will be funded for a one year MRes, with an emphasis on research methods, followed by three years of PhD research.
We offer 4 distinct MRes degrees:
- MRes in International Politics
- MRes in Human Rights and International Politics
- MRes in Political Communication
- MRes in Public Policy
2. +3 awards: Students demonstrating sufficient training in research methods will be funded for three years of research on a topic matching research interests in the School.
Depending on the subject matter, these awards can be hosted by either the Politics or Urban Studies subject groups (or both). Information about our PhD programmes, including areas of supervision and how to apply can be found at:

No separate application is required to be considered for this award.
