Social Science Research Opportunities

Below we have listed some broad areas of research that reflect the School’s research strengths and long-term strategic aims, as articulated in our REF Environment statement. Specific projects can be suggested for each area if required.

We actively encourage projects that are interdisciplinary in scope and which would include colleagues from Schools and Departments outside Education in supervisory teams. We consider that supervisory teams will ideally include a mix of junior and more senior colleagues, and would consist primarily in colleagues on Academic contracts, but we recognise that there may be a role for colleagues on other types of contract as appropriate.
