The University of Reading is at the forefront in cutting edge research on Human Geography themes, global transformations, sustainable development and resilience of the built environment. Reading has been known for decades as a centre of excellence in Real Estate & Planning and in Construction Management & Engineering, and has recently created an innovative new centre of excellence in Architecture.
We are currently inviting applications from excellent UK/EU students for a PhD funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) 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 our department websites, Real Estate & Planning (Real Estate and Planning research and supervisors) and Construction Management & Engineering and Architecture (Built Environment Research Division and Supervisors in Architecture; Supervisors in Construction Management and Engineering). We invite applications from candidates with research interests relevant to any of the SeNSS Human Geography Pathway fields: ‘Global Transformations’, ‘Cultural Formations’, ‘Resilient Built Environments’, and ‘Sustainable Visions’.
The studentship is available for three or four years (depending on previous qualifications) and on a full- or part-time basis.
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 are encouraging candidates to express an interest as early as possible in the autumn term and preferably before 5th November 2018. Candidates shortlisted by Reading will go forward to the next round of the SeNSS competition with a deadline early in 2019.
