CENTRE FOR THE STUDY OF RISK AND INEQUALITY
3 fully funded DfE studentships are available.

The Centre brings together researchers from across the University to investigate the relationship between two of the most significant challenges facing the world today: tacking increasing inequality and managing systemic risks. In addressing these challenges our primary focus is on questions concerning finance, the environment, and health.

We have a strong interdisciplinary orientation with members drawn from a wide range of disciplines, including politics, philosophy, law, sociology, nursing and midwifery, public health, engineering, planning, biological sciences, and management. This breadth of expertise, interdisciplinary focus, and a strong commitment to using research to have a sustained impact on society, all make the Centre an excellent place to study for a PhD.

In the first instance please contact either the relevant lead supervisor or the Centre Director, Dr Tom Walker (tom.walker@qub.ac.uk), for further details and information about the application process.

More information is detailed here.

The closing date for DfE applications is Friday 17 February 2017 at 5pm.
