What we offer our researchers, external partners and students

SeNSS offers a world-class inter-disciplinary PhD research and training environment. It is committed to supporting its internationally recognised researchers and to producing the next generation of talented social scientists. SeNSS has been accredited as a prestigious Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the national body which funds research and training in economic and social issues. The first intake of SeNSS students began their studies in October 2017, and the current competition for SeNSS Studentships opened in October 2017. Please go to our Prospective Students page for further information.

SeNSS focusses on three things in particular:

• Our rigorous doctoral training programme, making the most of our members’ diverse specialisms and offering our students a wide array of subject-specific as well as advanced training opportunities. SeNSS offers high-calibre supervision, driven by our members’ emphasis on formal training and research culture.

• Supporting our researchers in producing their cutting edge exploration of the most challenging social science issues of our day. In particular, we do this through promoting interdisciplinary research networks, a focus on key social challenges and the role of social science in addressing these, and an emphasis on research impact, and engaging with senior research users and practitioners.

• Sponsoring more and better ways for researcher user and practitioners to harness social science research. In particular, we organise formal PhD student placements with external organisations, host collaborative research involving external partners, and convene a forum for senior research users and practitioners to support new innovations in research collaboration.
