ESRC PhD Studentship: Linking housing, poverty and the labour market (+3 or 1+3 award)
Applications are invited from social scientists (or those from other relevant disciplines) with an interest in pioneering the use of administrative data to examine the relationships between housing, poverty and the labour market. The successful applicant will have an interest in housing or social policy, and they will be keen to develop advanced quantitative skills particularly in the analysis of linked administrative datasets. The studentship provides a superb opportunity for a high quality academic training. The student will be located within Urban Studies, one of Europe’s leading centres for inter-disciplinary urban research – rated joint first in its field at the REF 2014. They will be a part of the ESRC-funded Administrative Data Research Centre for Scotland (ADRC Scotland), a research centre at the cutting edge of the exploitation of administrative data for social research. The student will benefit from excellent supervisory support from Professors Nick Bailey and Ken Gibb.
