University of Salford: PHD Studentship

Social Aspects of Technological Innovation
Institute for Social, Cultural and Policy Research

Applications are invited for a three-year full-time PhD Studentship, fully funded (fees and maintenance grant) by EPSRC, to commence September 2004.
This studentship is directly linked with a current research project investigating the social and economic aspects of sustainable energy, and particularly the emergence of a ‘Hydrogen economy'. It is desirable that the student has already successfully completed social sciences training to Master's level, but the successful candidate will be able to access additional ESRC-accredited doctoral training at Salford as part of their research leading to a PhD Thesis. The student will be required to carry out studies of technological innovation and its social context: the exact topic will be agreed. Applications from graduates in the social sciences and environmental sciences with an interest in science and technology policy are especially welcome.
