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.

These all cover tuition fees at the postgraduate standard home/EU rate (£4,052) in addition to an annual maintenance stipend which is  £14,057 per annum (2016-2017 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 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 - although students are strongly encouraged to contact potential supervisors before the end of December. Click here for more.

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.  *for more information about the current PhD students look under teaching.
