Fully funded PhD studentship opportunity
Fully funded PhD studentship opportunity

Fully funded PhD studentship opportunity.

This is an exciting collaborative project organised by Dundee University and the Dundee Violence Against Women Partnership.

Please note that this project includes an opportunity (if it is required) of completing an MSc training in research methods prior to embarking on the PhD research.

Please note that the closing date for application is Wednesday 26th April.

PhD Studentship
Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship (ESRC) investigating the social and psychological factors that shape the opportunities for women involved in commercial sexual exploitation to exit prostitution. Because of the nature of this research, only female candidates can be considered.

The studentship:
Funding is available (fees plus maintenance grant) to undertake research leading to a PhD at the University of Dundee. The studentship is for three years and is suitable for an individual who holds a first degree and an MSc in subjects that provide research training in the social sciences. Candidates who do not have an MSc (or who have one that does not entail a minimum threshold of research training) are welcome to apply, and if successful, would be required to undertake an MSc providing advanced training in research methods. If this is required, extra funding to cover the period of the MSc training (fees and maintenance grant) would be provided. This opportunity is available on both a full and part-time basis.

The organisation of the project: The research is interdisciplinary bringing together expertise in the social psychology of stigma and identity (Prof. Nick Hopkins, Psychology) and expertise in resilience and well-being (Dr. Beverley Searle, Geography). Moreover the project is collaborative in nature: it is organised in conjunction with a multi-agency partnership (the Dundee Violence Against Women Partnership) that has responsibilities for, amongst other things, the protection and support of women involved in commercial sexual exploitation and challenging the demand for prostitution.
