The Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Health (WCCEH) is one of the four multidisciplinary Humanities & Social Science (HASS) centres funded by the Wellcome Trust.  We comprise around 50 staff and post-graduate research students, from four of the University of Exeter colleges: Humanities; Social Sciences and International Studies; Life and Environmental Sciences; and College of Medicine and Health. We collaborate with partners across and beyond the university, including the other Wellcome HASS centres. Members work on one of three campuses: St Luke’s, Streatham (both in Exeter) or in Truro. We have a purpose-built centre on Streatham campus, which has office, meeting and communal space and where this Fellowship will be based.

The Fellowship provides UK fees and a yearly stipend (Year 1: £19,919, Year 2: £21,543, Year 3: £23,298). There will also be a small annual allowance for research expenses. The primary supervisor will be from the Centre, co-supervisors can be from the wider academic body of the four Colleges.

We invite an application for one full-time 3-year PhD Fellowship, to be based in the Wellcome Centre for Cultures and Environments of Heath and the College of Life and Environmental Sciences, starting no later than March 2022. The project should be transdisciplinary and engaged in nature. Proposals should contribute to one of the following five thematic areas:

  1. Health across the life course
  2. Ageing & Dying
  3. The Healing City
  4. Exploring Society with COVID19
  5. Evidence

Eligibility

Applicants should have an undergraduate degree (2.1 or above) in any relevant social science subject, and a Masters degree (or equivalent experience) which has provided some research training.

Process

To apply, please prepare:

  • A two page proposal which outlines the project background, research question(s), and methods proposed to address these questions. 
  • A CV which includes details of your past educational and other experience
  • A brief budget for your project, with any costs required for fieldwork, travel and other expenses.

For all themes, proposals should outline how the candidate proposes to utilise engaged, transdisciplinary methods. We define transdisciplinary research broadly: whilst PhDs are submitted within a discipline, we expect all students to reach beyond that discipline, and to identify in their proposal how they will do this. We are particularly interested in proposed projects which bring critical theories to bear on the topics above.

The deadline for applications is 15th December 2021
