The NINE DTP studentships provide an opportunity to join an outstanding research and teaching environment at an exciting time when Durham University is creating a centre of excellence in quantitative social psychology. Candidates may apply for funding for the three-year Doctoral Programme (a +3 award), or may also apply for funding for both Masters and Doctoral study (1+3 awards). NINE DTP also offers a +3.5 programme, which allows students with a Masters (or equivalent experience) to complete a funded course on research methods training should they be lacking the necessary qualifications in social science research methodology.
