UK: Master and PhD Scholarships at The University of Manchester

MSc in Social Research Methods and Statistics

Scholarships Available in 2010. This course provides a firm grounding in advanced quantitative methods, taught within an applied social science framework, and offers relevant and marketable skills for a career in research. It is recognised for PhD training by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and is taught with an emphasis on hands-on training in the application of methods and software. The course is available full-time over one year or part-time over two years.

PhD opportunities in Social Statistics

Available Funding 2010. PhD students are highly valued members of Social Statistics and we strive to provide a supportive and stimulating environment for study. We welcome applications to study both methodological and substantive contemporary social, economic and political questions using up-to-date and imaginative quantitative approaches. It is possible for potential students to receive joint supervision from specialists in other disciplines in the School of Social Sciences or from elsewhere in the University. Research may be UK focused or have an international comparative dimension.

We are particularly keen to receive applications in the following research areas:

* Longitudinal Data Analysis
* Multilevel Modelling
* Small Area Estimation
* Data Rights, Confidentiality and Privacy Research
* Social Network Analysis

Doing a research degree

If you already have a good Master’s degree then you can apply to be enrolled directly on to the PhD programme. Alternatively, if you have a good first degree you will probably have to register for our 1+3 programme which includes a 1 year MSc in Social Research Methods and Statistics followed by a 3 year PhD. This will give you the opportunity to gain research skills that are essential to work at doctoral level. Of course, you needn’t do your PhD on a full-time basis; part-time study is also a possibility.

How to apply

Potential applicants should have a good first degree (first or upper second). In the first instance expressions of interest should be addressed to the Social Statistics Executive administrator: Margaret Martin.

Formal applications can be made on-line or by mail (forms available from Vicky Barnes who administers our postgraduate admissions).

Five studentships are available; from the Economic & Social Research Council. These prestigious awards include fees and an annual stipend of up to £16,290 and an additional allowance for research expenses. For further information please visit www.ccsr.ac.uk/phd

To apply for one of these simply indicate that this is your intended source of funding in the financial section of the application form. If your application for a PhD place is successful, we will contact you about the nomination process.
There is also a bursary - the Stanley Jevons postgraduate loyalty bursary - for University of Manchester undergraduates who start an ESRC-recognised Masters.
