The Centre for Animals and Social Justice, in conjunction with the University of Leicester’s Department of Politics and International Relations, is funding a PhD Studentship at Leicester – there’s not a lot of time to apply, but it looks like a fantastic opportunity to do some interesting research. See: http://www2.le.ac.uk/study/research/funding/animal-representation for full details.
“The Department of Politics and International Relations and the Centre for Animals and Social Justice are pleased to offer a funded studentship for October 2012 entry to the Department’s Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme. The studentship is fully funded by the College of Social Science, the Department of Politics and International Relations, and an external partner – the Centre for Animals and Social Justice– and, subject to satisfactory progress, will pay full-time UK/EU fees for three years together with an annual maintenance grant.
The successful applicant will be expected to devote a proportion of their time – about 40 hours per quarter – to contributing to the Centre for Animals and Social Justice’s research and policy engagement work, which may involve activities such as presenting papers at academic/stakeholder conferences and preparing policy briefings.”
The deadline for applications is 28 May 2012.
