ESRC KISS-DTC collaborative studentships
**** JUST ANNOUNCED FOR 2013 ****
The KISS-DTC Collaborative Studentship Competition promotes partnerships between social scientists at King’s and end-user (public or private or third sector) organisations (‘partner institutions’). A collaborative studentship (sometimes referred to as a CASE studentship) is a PhD studentship in which the student enhances their training by working closely with the non-academic partner in the development of their research project.
Potential supervisors apply for collaborative studentships. If successful they can award the studentship either to a named student or through a recruitment process. Three collaborative studentships will be awarded in this competition.
Projects should mutually benefit the student and the partner institution. The involvement of the partner institution should add value to the studentship (e.g. distinctive opportunities for analysis, dissemination, research management, networking and/or knowledge transfer). It should also enhance the partner institution’s activities by offering the potential for societal or economic impact. Therefore, while the bulk of funding will come from the KISS-DTC, an additional financial contribution is expected from the partner institution (minimum £2,500 per annum for three years).
Applications should fall within the KISS-DTC social science remit and should relate to at least one of the KISS-DTC research themes.
Further information, including how to apply, is available on the KISS-DTC website. The closing date is 1 March 2013 at 16:00.
