https://www.mub.eps.manchester.ac.uk/thebeam/2020/11/17/phd-bursary-call-for-social-research-into-geological-disposal/


Funding sufficient for a 4 year UK – and 3+ for o/seas. The Ph.D. can be held at any UK University.  Applications have to be in by 16th December. We’ve done a lot of work to ensure that there is the possibility for genuinely interesting work – for ethnography and for critical engagement with the sector – please encourage any excellent masters or third year students that might connect to any of the themes mentioned  below – which can easily be linked to interests in climate change, materiality, environmental justice, etc. The call is open to all social science disciplines – broadly conceived.   Please spread the word!

  • comparative methods to evaluate social well-being
  • citizen science and deliberative democracy
  • comparative social research on large-scale infrastructure projects
  • value modelling and its application
  • intergenerational ethics
  • institutional learning
