Current Opportunities

These opportunities are open to all Social Sciences PhD students 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.

Co-op Teams

The Co-operative Team events are short meetings designed for researchers to gain knowledge on the work of senior non-academic guests and stimulate them to discuss key societal questions and challenges of our time that might be outside their specialised field.
