The Centre for Urban Research on Austerity (CURA) invites outstanding prospective PhD students to apply for a De Montfort University (DMU) PhD Scholarship. We welcome applications from students capable of developing innovative, interdisciplinary and internationally relevant research in any field related to cities, urban living and austerity. We further encourage applicants interested in collaborative projects across research centres.
Applicants interested in working with CURA should, in the first instance, submit a research proposal of up to 750 words, outlining the proposed project and how it fits with DMU and CURA. This should include:
– an overview and research questions,
– an explanation of the intellectual positioning of the project,
– the proposed research methodology and methods,
– link to one or more research areas of urban living, lifelong well-being, creativity in the digital age and social value and/or one or more of the 17 United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals
The proposal should be submitted, with a CV, to the Institute Head of Research Students, Dr Adam Fishwick (email@example.com), to identify support and supervision for the project from the Centre.
Once approved by a potential supervisor, the student must submit final scholarship applications to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday 26 March 2019. More details on how to submit applications and what to include in the final submission are available here: https://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/BQL657/de-montfort-university-phd-scholarships.
