Two new GTA/GRA posts at the Dept of Sociology, University of Leicester

Posted on by Jason Hughes

The Sociology Department at the University of Leicester is expanding. An integral part of this expansion involves the development and growth of its postgraduate research community. The latest opportunity is for two fully funded teaching or research assistant PhD posts. We have specified a number of key areas – sports, citizenship, historical sociology and migration – but welcome applications from research students interested in any areas that are broadly consistent with the interests of members of the Department.

Sociology at Leicester has a long association with the work of Elias. We would particularly welcome work that follows in the tradition of examining the social world in a processual and relational manner, albeit that there is no requirement that it need be directly or explicitly ‘Eliasian’!

Full details of the Graduate Teaching Assistantship/Graduate Research Assistantship can be found here.
