Dear All,

Please pass on to your talented BA and MA students. Thanks,


Doctoral Studentship in the Centre for Research in Communication and Culture, Loughborough University Reference GSRC2015

The Centre for Research in Communication and Culture (CRCC) at Loughborough invites applications for a funded PhD studentship to start in January 2015 (or as soon thereafter as possible).

Loughborough University has an outstanding international reputation for its research and teaching in communication, media and cultural analysis. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, our submission to the D36 Unit of Assessment 'Communication, Cultural and Media Studies, Library and Information Management' was ranked 7th / 67 according to Grade Point Average and 2nd in both Research Power and Research Intensity. In October 2015, the QS World rankings rated the university among the top 50 Universities in the world for Communication and Media Studies, for the fourth year in succession.

The Centre is particularly well-known for world-leading research in:

*         Social Interaction, Conversation Analysis and Social Psychology;

*         Political Communication;

*         Social, Cultural and Media Theory;

*         Migration and Nationalism;

*         Media and Communication History.

Funding and eligibility

The studentship is open to all graduates with backgrounds in relevant disciplines and who are articulate, well qualified and highly motivated. The minimum entry qualification is a 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent. The studentship is for three years and will cover tuition fees at the UK/EU rate and an annual stipend of £14,057 (standard RCUK rate 2015/16 academic year). International (non-EU) students may apply but will need to find the difference in fees between those for a 'UK/EU' and 'international' student themselves.
