Background Information

Closer engagement with the private, public and civil society sectors is an ESRC priority and in the Cambridge ESRC DTP we are committed to working in partnership to facilitate collaboration and ultimately help drive innovation and growth.

Our approach is flexible, with a range of opportunities to engage with a world leading social science knowledge base. It covers the full range of social science disciplines as well as a strong and growing focus on Interdisciplinary research.

Cambridge DTP ESRC funded PhD students can bring both knowledge and skills to the host organisation. They provide crucial extra resources and generate real outputs, adding to the evidence base within the organisation and bringing fresh ideas, and specialised strengths and skills which augment the capacities of the professional workforce.
