Current Opportunities

These opportunities are open to all Social Sciences PhD students, postdoctoral fellows and those in transition (i.e. who just finished their PhD studies and haven't started their postdocs) at the University of Cambridge.

The Cambridge ESRC DTP is very much committed to the idea of ‘real world research’ and we want our students to gain experience of working with external partners, however briefly.  We expect DTP students to undertake some form of collaborative activity as part of the their PhD training. We also strongly believe that there can be mutual benefits in such collaboration.
