The Fifth CRISP Doctoral Training School
Deadline for applications: Friday 27th March 2020
CRISP is proud to announce that applications can be submitted for its fifth biannual Doctoral Training School. The School takes place at the University of Essex from Monday 15– Friday 19 June 2020. The School will feature five days of intensive training in multi-disciplinary research methods and skills in the field of Surveillance Studies. It will also feature a range of knowledge-exchange and research-training activities, as well as providing social and networking opportunities.
The school will be delivered via a range of interactive lectures and workshops and will be facilitated by leading surveillance scholars. Students will have the opportunity to apply this training to their own doctoral research and to learn transferable research skills. Scheduled session topics include:
- state-of-the-art lectures by leading surveillance scholars
- research skills workshops
- working within and between disciplines
- publishing in top ranked journals
- techniques for securing research funding
- working with the media
The closing date for applications is Friday 27th March 2020. We will inform applicants whether their application has been successful by Friday 6th April.
The fee for participation is £375. This covers all tuition fees, field trip, refreshments, lunches and some evening meals. Local accommodation will be available at a competitive rate but participants must fund this themselves. Prospective participants are advised to investigate their funding options before applying.
A small number of CRISP Bursaries, equivalent to the Doctoral Training School Fee, are available to participants facing significant financial restraint. If you would like to be considered for a CRISP Bursary please complete the relevant section of the application form.
