The University of Edinburgh invites applications for two ESRC postgraduate studentships in the field of Science and Technology Studies (STS). These are tenable on a 1+3 basis (i.e. one year taking the MSc by Research in STS, plus three years of PhD study) or on a +3 basis for students who have already completed the ESRC research training requirements. The studentships may be held by UK citizens, and will cover fees, research costs and a maintenance allowance, or by other EU nationals, in which case only fees and research costs are payable.

Applications should be made on an ESRC postgraduate studentship application form downloadable from the ESRC website: <>
