The Collaboration in Training and Innovation for Growing, Evolving and Networked Societies (CITI-GENS) programme at Queen’s University Belfast is a MSCA COFUND Doctoral Training Programme.
The CITI-GENS programme is hosted by the award winning Graduate School at Queen's University Belfast. The Graduate School is an intellectual and social hub for all postgraduates that connects students across disciplines to one another, and to mentors, thought leaders, and employers both within the university and beyond. You'll be part of a cohort of research students, creating a community and exciting learning environment.
You will benefit from an interdiscplinary supervisory team offering a unique perspective on your project and preparing you for work across disciplinary boundaries in your future career. You will also have an external partner from a non academic organistion on your project, offering an intersectoral experience, often in the form of secondments/placements. See individual project descriptions for partner information.
As an MSCA Fellow you will be in the unique position of being an employee of the University as well as a student, you can read more about the employment contact here.
The project will be led by two leading academics within the University, Professor Margaret Topping, Dean of the Graduate School and Dr Muiris MacCarthaigh, Senior Lecturer and former Director of Graduate Studies at the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics. Queen's University Belfast already hosts a successful MSCA DTP called SPaRK and you can hear what some of them have to say about the programme here and also read more about the programme, including their profiles, projects and partners here.
