PhD studentship opportunity at the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations, Coventry University
As part of an expansion of research activity in the role religion plays in forging (or inhibiting) trust and peaceful relations, Coventry University is offering one full-time PhD studentship to a well-qualified individual, to start in September 2016. This studentship will support our partnership with 3FF (Three Faiths Forum), one of the leading UK interfaith and intercultural organisations. Proposals are invited for a PhD research project exploring the role and impact of 3FF in fostering peaceful relations.
We welcome proposals that will provide new insights about the difference 3FF’s work makes to the communities it works with, including young people, schools, universities, students, religious groups, members of Parliament, women and local communities. We welcome proposals that are interdisciplinary, innovative and use participatory research methods. Proposals should challenge existing ideas, expand current thinking and contribute to change within 3FF and the communities it works with.
The PhD studentship will be based within the Faith and Peaceful Relations Research Group, one of six research groups in the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations. The PhD student will work 6 hours per week as a Research Assistant within the research group.
This full-time PhD studentship will cover UK/EU or overseas fee equivalence plus a bursary of £14,057 per annum for three years.
