ESRC Centre for Genomics in Society PhD Studentship Opportunities

Studentships are available to start in the academic year 2009/10 at the ESRC
Centre for Genomics and Society (Egenis), University of Exeter, UK. These
include two ESRC linked studentships (3 or 1+3) and 3-year full fee and
maintenance School of Humanities and Social Science studentships for home

Egenis are looking to recruit students with strong undergraduate degrees (for
ESRC 1+3 only) or Master’s degrees (for 3 year PhDs) in disciplines
including sociology, philosophy, psychology, history, economics, politics,
and biology to be part of our interdisciplinary research community. Egenis
has a unique research profile in the social study of science and medicine
and philosophy of biology with a particular focus on emerging areas of
genetic, genomic and post-genomic science.

Prospective students should contact a member of staff by the end of February
to explore potential research topics
