As part of the University’s new ESRC Doctoral Training Centre CRESI is offering a number of training pathways which include MA/MSc training and PhD supervision in (amongst others)
- Economic sociology
- Science in society
- Survey methodology
We would welcome applications from students interested in studying sociological aspects of climate change from these and other perspectives and would especially welcome students interested in making use of ’Understanding Society‘, the new UK 40,000-strong household longitudinal study and it’s predecessor the British Household Panel Survey.
Together these datasets provide a unique longitudinal resource tracking the socio-ecomic circumstances and, more latterly, sustainable practices and attitudes of UK citizens over the last 20 years. Both of these surveys are/were lead by our colleagues at Essex’s renowned Institute for Social and Economic Research to which our students have everyday access.
Students would form part of a wider research community focused on the ESRC Sustainable Practices Research Group and Essex’s own ‘Growth and Sustainability: constructing a new global socio-economic and political order‘ challenge.
More information on available studentships, how to apply and other related graduate courses and programmes is available from the Department of Sociology website.
