• PhD Studentships: Political Spaces

PAIS Studentship: Political Spaces


The Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Warwick is pleased to announce a competition for two PhD studentships in the broad area of Political Spaces. These department-funded scholarships are aimed at candidates starting their PhD in PAIS in 2013, or possibly 2014.
This doctoral research will form part of PAIS’s programme to consolidate the study of political spaces, which is a growing research area in the department and across the University more broadly. The successful candidate will be supervised by Professor Stuart Elden, who is joining the department in September 2013, and another member of staff in PAIS. In addition to pursuing their own doctoral research, the holder of the Fellowship will be expected under Prof Elden’s direction to form part of a research team and provide assistance in a range of activities to promote research on political spaces.
Because women are under-represented in this field, female candidates in particular are encouraged to apply.
