Call for applications
The Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine (CHSTM), University of Manchester, invites expressions of interest and applications for a Master’s studentship in Humanities and Social Science, funded by the Wellcome Trust.
As part of their commitment to building an influential and diverse population of future researchers in humanities and social sciences, the Wellcome Trust have provided CHSTM with a number of studentships which cover full fees (at UK/EU rate) and a living allowance for one year of taught Master’s study on our Master’s programme in History of Science, Technology and Medicine.
Applicants must be strongly committed to building a research career relevant to the themes covered by the Wellcome Trust’s Humanities and Social Sciences schemes. Competitive applicants will have a clear idea as to their Master’s research project and how this will lead to doctoral study. Potential for synergy with ongoing research at CHSTM within medical history and humanities would be highly desirable.
Applicants are encouraged to express their interest and discuss potential applications by contacting Dr Rob Kirk (email@example.com).
Application information and deadlines
Applications should be sent to Dr Kirk at the address above no later than 31st March 2020. Your application should include:
• a brief CV with details of undergraduate degree held or being undertaken • details of the research proposed (maximum of two pages) including:
o Detailed outline of Master’s level research project.
o Brief outline of anticipated doctoral research area.
• a letter of support from a current academic sponsor
Successful applications will be chosen by a committee of research active University of Manchester academics who work across medical history and humanities.
