2 new PhD Studentships in the DEMAND Centre, Lancaster University
Two 3 year fully funded PhD studentships are available to start in October 2014. The ‘Dynamics of Energy Mobility and Demand Centre’ is a newly established social science led research centre that is investigating the foundations and dynamics of energy demand in the context of low carbon policies and demand reduction objectives.
Successful applicants will join a vibrant academic community both at Lancaster and across the DEMAND consortium. This will provide many added benefits in terms of the development of strong academic and non-academic networks and involvement in summer schools, workshops, seminars and reading and writing groups.
There are four potential topic areas for the studentships and we are open to these being approached using ideas and concepts from across different traditions including political science, history, human geography, social theories of practice; normative theory; technology/innovation studies, organisation/management studies and sociology.
Applicants should hold an undergraduate degree at 2(i) or first class level, and a relevant postgraduate Masters degree. We are only able to accept applications from UK or EU citizens, resident in the UK/EU. For further details see http://www.demand.ac.uk/getting-involved/opportunities-for-academics/#phdstudents
Deadline for Applications is 9 May 2014.
