The Institute of Education at Reading is one of the leading Education departments in the UK, with a thriving community of around 70 PhD students. We are currently inviting applications from excellent UK/EU students for a PhD funded by the Economic and Social Research Council as part of the South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS) Doctoral Training Partnership.
Interested candidates can find information about our areas of research expertise through consulting the websites of our two research groups, Language and Literacy in Education (www.reading.ac.uk/education/research/ioe-researchLLE.aspx) and Improving Equity and Inclusion through Education (www.reading.ac.uk/education/research/ioe-researchEII.aspx). We invite applications from candidates with research interests relevant to these fields.
Studentships are available for three or four years (depending on applicants’ previous qualifications) and on a full- or part-time basis. We encourage candidates to apply as early as possible (initial expressions of interest should ideally be made by 5th November), to allow time for candidates to discuss proposals with potential supervisors and for shortlisting of those candidates who will go forward to the next round of the SeNSS competition.
Further information about the SeNSS programme can be found here (www.reading.ac.uk/graduateschool/funding-and-fees/gs-senss-info.aspx).
How to apply:
We encourage students to make an expression of interest as early as possible in the Autumn term, ideally before 5th November, with the deadline for formal applications likely to be in early December. Candidates shortlisted by Reading will go forward to the next round of the SeNSS competition with a deadline early in 2019.
