University of Brighton Fully Funded PhD Studentship

We are delighted to announce that the University of Brighton – as part of a consortium with the University of Portsmouth and the University of Southampton: South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership – has become a prestigious Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) doctoral training partnership, offering fully-funded PhD studentships over the next six years, commencing October 2017. At Brighton, these studentships must be linked to one of three areas of social science research excellence in the university – one of which is sport, leisure and tourism.

Projects will be applicant-led, rather than responding to pre-determined topics. A formal announcement / application details will follow soon, but prospective applicants should get in touch with one of us to discuss their ideas straight away. Please see the following link for more details on academic staff and research interests in the sociology of sport / physical culture:
