Several PhDs Scholarships are available at SSPSSR at the University of Kent. These include University 50th anniversary and SSPSSR school scholarships and the South-East DTC scholarships.
This year, in addition to these, there will be 18 Eastern ARC PhD Fellowships available.

These all cover tuition fees at the postgraduate standard home/EU rate (£3,900) in addition to an annual maintenance stipend which is £13,863 per annum (2015-2016 rate).Successful candidates will have obtained a 1st or good 2-1 undergraduate degree, and ordinarily an MA or MSC at Merit or Distinction level. The school and 50 anniversary scholarships include as part of their value a Graduate Teaching Assistantship which involves undertaking a limited amount of teaching. ESRC studentships and EARC studentships do not entail any teaching and will have a extra funding for mobility and training.

As a part of the SSPSSR scholarship, we have a quants scholarship available to students applying quantitative methods in their projects. These students will have an extra £3000 to undertake advanced training in quantitative methods.

Deadline for submission is the 31st of January. Click here for more.(under research2015)

Those of you who wish to pursue a PhD under my supervision here at the University of Kent can contact me to discuss your PhD proposals by early January at the very latest

NOTE:  I only take one or maybe two additional PhD students per year, and will give priority to those working with quantitative data in the field of comparative labour market and welfare state research.
