PhD Scholarship funding 2018

Successful applicants play a vital role in Manchester Met’s vibrant and growing research community

Building on the success of the previous two years’ VC PhD Scholarship competitions, we are again awarding a VC PhD Scholarship for 2018 entry.

This scholarship, which offers to cover fees and includes a stipend, is entitled: Welfare Systems for the New Economy: A Three Country Comparison of Social Protection for the Self-employed.

The project will be part of a new inter-disciplinary programme of research looking at how welfare systems shape ‘decent self-employment’. It will put the UK in context by comparing welfare provision with two other countries and developing evidence-led policy recommendations.

We welcome applications from high quality candidates, possibly with a background in social policy. The deadline for applications is 31 January 2018.

For more information about the aims and objectives of the project, please visit http://www2.mmu.ac.uk/research/research-study/scholarships/detail/avc18-fobl-jr-2018-1-welfare-systems-for-the-new-economy-a-three-country-comparison-of-social-protection-for-the-self-employed.php.
