Academic staff and Post doctoral researchers from any University within the UK and the rest of the world, are invited to become CRESC Visiting Research Fellows at either the University of Manchester or the Open University. This appointment will involve no payment, but offers you formal attachment to the University and CRESC and access to research facilities such as the library and the Information Systems Services. CRESC will provide desk space (subject to availabilty), and access to office, library and computer facilities.
If you are interested in applying to become a CRESC Visiting Research Fellow please send your CV and an one page research proposal to the Centre Administrator. Your proposal needs to be linked to one of CRESC's research themes in ways which demonstrably support and advance the theme. Visiting Research Fellowships can be awarded from any period from one to six months, and Fellows will normally be expected to (a) submit a CRESC working paper for consideration at the end of the tenure (b) take a role in research workshops or events as arranged with the theme convenor.
CRESC currently has a lively and engaged post-graduate community, and we welcome PhD applications from anyone who is keen to undertake doctoral work within our exciting interdisciplinary programme. Currently we have students from France, Turkey, the UK, Germany, China, Brazil, Hong Kong, Hungary, Greece and Taiwan working on aspects of socio-cultural change - ranging from studies of social mobility, urban change, social theory, elites, and changing forms of identity to work on the social life of method.
Regular seminars are held and and full administrative support is provided . There are excellent opportunities for post-graduate students to become involved in the wider research programme of CRESC, and students have been employed on funded research projects. All students are affiliated with an academic discipline, meaning that they can also benefit from the facilities made available to students in, for example, anthropology, history, politics, sociology, and management.
Supervision can be provided by Centre Directors or Research Associates/ Fellows. Currently, all of our students have obtained funding either through ESRC or University of Manchester or Open University studentships. Such funding may be available to candidates who are nominated by one of CRESC’s disciplines. Anyone interested in applying should in the first instance discuss their interest with CRESC post-graduate co-ordinators - Penny Harvey(Penny.email@example.com) at Manchester and John Law (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the Open University - who will advise on the appropriate discipline and school through which an application can be made and how best to apply for funding.
