Do you want to undertake a PhD in Resilience that can make a real difference? We welcome applications from excellent students interested in studying alongside the Centre of Resilience for Social Justice (CRSJ). The CRSJ is a network of researchers tackling disadvantage and bringing genuine change to people’s lives around the world. The CRSJ works closely with Boingboing and we have an incredible group of postgraduate students working on developing the Boingboing resilience approach, as well as previous successful PhD students doing great postdoctoral research or practice with us. Students working with the CRSJ and Boingboing have lots of support and the chance to engage with a wide range of researchers across the fields of healthcare, sociology, media studies and arts practices. Unusually, the team includes a cross-section of academics, activists, social workers, teachers, experts through experience and service users. Some of us have multiple identities, including many of our research students and we welcome students with complex personal backgrounds and/or who face inequalities themselves as well as students from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.
Applicants would need to have a great theoretical and practice-based research background to Masters level and a well-thought through proposal, as well as loads of energy to dedicate to a PhD. If you are interested in self-funded study, you can find out more here. For students in need of funding we occasionally have funded studentships which will be advertised below and elsewhere on the Boingboing website. Otherwise, you can seek separate funding from student finance, charities, trusts or programmes such as the South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership.
If you want your PhD research to make a real difference then come and join us. The Centre of Resilience for Social Justice tackles disadvantage and brings genuine change to people’s lives around the world.
