The Faculty of Education & Theology is seeking applications from those interested in pursuing a PhD research project in education.

The Faculty has a long tradition of educational provision, dating back to early Victorian times. It has a vibrant research culture underpinning its core aim of providing exceptional learning for its students. Within the education subject area there are two research staff groupings and this studentship is linked to the ‘education and praxis’ theme. The project aims to examine the nature of current education policy in England, in terms of both content and process, but with a particular focus on its impact on professionals and their practice.

Supervision will be provided by Professor Donald Gillies and Dr Tony Leach. Professor Gillies’ research interests are centred on education policy while Dr Leach has research expertise in relation to professional working.

The studentship is for 3 years and covers tuition fees and a tax-exempt bursary of £14,400 per annum. Successful applicants must have an honours degree (minimum 2:1) or a postgraduate masters degree from a UK HEI, or an internationally recognised equivalent. Applications are invited which demonstrate generic social science research skills, but experience in using qualitative methods within education contexts is particularly welcomed.
