Queen Mary University of London, as part of the London Social Sciences ESRC Doctoral Training Centre, is seeking a well-qualified applicant to undertake a PhD relating to a collaborative project with the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) entitled “Between production and market: logistics and labour organising in the global economy”.
Applicants should ideally hold (or expect to be awarded in 2014) a first class or high 2(i) undergraduate degree in a relevant subject. A Master’s degree and/or relevant research experience in a relevant area would be advantageous. The successful applicant will be supervised by Professor Adrian Smith (School of Geography) and Dr Liam Campling (School of Business and Management) and will work collaboratively with Dr Jeremy Anderson at the ITF.
This studentship may be either 1+3 (one year MRes followed by three year PhD), or +3 (three year PhD only, available for those who will have completed appropriate masters level social science research training). Funding will cover a tax-free scholarship (currently £15726 p.a.), research student fees and relevant research and field work expenses. Eligibility is based on UK residency, although EU students not resident in the UK may apply for a fees only award.
