ESRC White Rose DTP



Project description

The White Rose Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP), accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) in 2016, is a collaboration across the social sciences at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan. 

Each year, a range of funded social sciences PhD studentships are available in the following 7 thematic interdisciplinary training pathways:

  • Cities, Environment, and Liveability (CEL)
  • Security, Conflict, and Justice (SCJ)
  • Education, Childhood, and Youth (ECY)
  • Data, Communication, and New Technologies (DCT)
  • Wellbeing, Health, and Communities (WHC)
  • Sustainable Growth, Management, and Economic Productivity (SMP)
  • Civil Society, Development, and Democracy (CDD)

The awards on offer are either/or:

+3 programme: funding for a three-year PhD (assumes that a student has already met the majority of the core social sciences research methods training requirements and that the PhD focus is largely on more advanced training)

1+3 programme: an integrated Masters programme precedes the three-year PhD which will deliver the core social sciences research methods training requirements (e.g. MA Social Research)

ALL awards are available for study part-time.

Deadline: 23 January 2019 - closing date for Pathway, AQM and Interdisciplinary.
