Call for Applicants: Midlands 4 Cities Doctoral Training Scheme (University of Leicester)

January 14, 2019

AHRC Midlands4Cities funding for UK/EU students

The AHRC-funded Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M4C) brings together eight leading universities across the Midlands to support the professional and personal development of the next generation of arts and humanities doctoral researchers. M4C is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, University of Warwick, Coventry University, University of Leicester, De Montfort University, Nottingham Trent University and The University of Nottingham.

M4C is awarding up to 80 doctoral studentships for UK/EU applicants for 2019 through an open competition and 11 Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDA) through a linked competition with a range of partner organisations in the cultural, creative and heritage sector.

The School of Media, Communication and Sociology is inviting applications from students whose research interests connect with our fields of expertise in:

  • Media Cultures
  • Public Communication
  • Digital Networks and Communication
  • Citizenship, Migration and Identity
  • Culture, Consumption and Production
  • Youth, Childhood and Generation
  • Developments in Theory and Methods

More information about the School’s areas of research interest can be found here: https://www2.le.ac.uk/research-degrees/phd/sociology/sociology#Supervisors and https://www2.le.ac.uk/research-degrees/phd/media

The deadline for M4C funding applications is 14 January 2019 (noon), by which time students must have applied for a place to study and have ensured that two academic references are submitted using the Midlands4Cities online reference form.
