QUALMAP: Qualitative Geospatial Methods for Active Participation

The Countryside and Community Research Institute (CCRI), University of Gloucestershire and the School of Geography and Planning, Cardiff University, supported by the ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership for Wales (Wales DTP), invites applications for a funded PhD studentship. This particular studentship is offered under the Environmental Planning Pathway of the ESRC Wales DTP, and is a ‘collaborative studentship’ which involves liaison with a non-academic organisation, often at many key stages of the research programme. Interviews will take place (either face-to-face or via Skype) during the week commencing 22nd May, and the successful applicant can expect to hear by mid-June 2017.

Applications are invited from exceptional candidates with a first class or strong upper second class honours degree, or appropriate Master’s degree. The University of Gloucestershire, Cardiff University and the ESRC Wales DTP value diversity and equality at all levels and we encourage applications from all sections of the community. We welcome applications for both full and part-time study, and studentship is available as either ‘1+3’ (i.e. one full-time year of research training masters followed by three years of full-time doctoral study, or the part-time equivalent), or ‘+3’ (i.e. three years of full-time doctoral study or its part-time equivalent), depending on the needs of the applicant.


The closing deadline for applications is 12:00 noon on Tuesday 9 May 2017. Short-listed applicants will be invited to interview, which are expected to take place during the week commencing Monday 22nd May. After interview, a final short-list of applicants will be put forward to the ESRC Wales DTP Doctoral Panel at which final decisions with regard to studentship awards will be made. Successful applicants can expect to hear by mid-June 2017.
