The University of Brighton's Doctoral College invites applications from around the world for one of up to 40 new PhD studentships available for entry during the 2012/2013 academic year. The studentships offer funding to pursue research across a range of topics including leisure/sport studies.
Each studentship is worth up to £55,650 over three years and covers tuition fees for UK/EU applicants and includes a contribution of £14,300 per annum towards living expenses. We would also like to hear from suitably qualified international candidates. The award will be of the same overall value, to cover international tuition fees and a contribution towards living expenses.
Some of the sport/leisure studies topics include:
Protesting the Olympics: anti-Olympics movements and Berlin's bid for the 2000 summer Olympics
Uprooted grassroots: transnational migrants in lower levels of English football
