Joint PhD projects in Criminology
We are seeking outstanding PhD candidates for University of Edinburgh and University of Glasgow Joint PhD Studentships for research projects in Criminology.
This theme will examine, theorise and evaluate a range of interconnected contemporary policy challenges within the sphere of crime and justice.
The Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow have longstanding working relationships within the discipline of criminology and criminal justice. These were strengthened by the establishment of the Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR) in 2006 and the Applied Quantitative Research Network Research Centre in 2013.
The proposed PhD projects will have a strong inter-disciplinary focus, using innovative and diverse methodological approaches, and deliver rich theoretical and policy narratives that will stimulate positive debate and action.
A list of proposed PhD projects is provided below. These projects have a strong inter-disciplinary focus, will use innovative and diverse methodological approaches, and deliver rich theoretical and policy narratives that will stimulate positive debate and action. Please note that applications will be subject to review. It is anticipated that four projects will be funded in total (two in 2019/20 and two in 2020/21).
We will also offer a series of joint training opportunities that include Away Days and 'taster sessions' in association with SCCJR research projects. We would also seek paid internship opportunities at Scottish Government and other relevant organisations for skills enhancement during the course of the PhD.
