The University of Kent is seeking two highly motivated and ambitious PhD candidates to work within the area of Quantitative Social Sciences. The successful candidates will join the exciting new research community of the Eastern Area Research Consortium (E-ARC) which unites Kent with the Universities of East Anglia and Essex as a significant new force in research collaboration and training.

We are looking to recruit students with a strong research proposal using quantitative methods or mixed methods in the following two areas.

  • Work life and family life
  • Aging and demographic change

The two successful candidates will work with both academics at Kent whilst being placed in a privileged position to network with academics and postgraduate researchers from across the three research intensive universitiesProvision will be made for the appointment of additional supervisors from Essex or East Anglia as appropriate and for students to take advantage of research expertise and training offered across all partner institutions. Candidates will play a significant role in supporting the development of the E-ARC. The two fully funded PhD studentships offer equivalent funding to a RCUK studentship (i.e. tuition fees (at the home/EU rate), a stipend and research training support grant).

Candidates interested in applying for the Kent Eastern ARC Scholarships should make contact with potential supervisors at the University of Kent. Academic enquiries should be sent to Dr. Heejung Chung (

Closing Date for Applications: Friday 30 January 2015. If you are interested in applying for an Eastern ARC PhD Studentship, please apply on-line and indicate that you are seeking Eastern ARC studentship funding.
