University of Reading Research Studentships in Social Science

Social scientists are concerned with contemporary and historical social issues and human behaviour at local, national and global levels. They bring a variety of theoretical and empirical methodologies to bear on such issues. Increasingly, they work across disciplinary fields, both within social sciences and with natural scientists and others.

This broad range of work is well represented at Reading, both within the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Science and beyond, including Henley Business School and significant clusters of social science activity within the Faculties of Science and Life Sciences. Much of our research training is centred within the Graduate School's Researcher Development Programme (RRDP); this training is supplemented by subject specific training in individual academic Schools and Departments.

We invite applications for studentships in any of the following subject areas:
