ESRC PhD studentship available in the Centre for Population Change

Published: 19 January 2010

The ESRC Centre for Population Change is based in Social Sciences at the University of Southampton, and aims to improve understanding of the key drivers and implications of population change within the UK.

The Centre is a joint initiative between the University of Southampton and a consortium of Scottish Universities in partnership with the Office for National Statistics and the General Registrar Office in Scotland, and is directed by Professor Jane Falkingham (University of Southampton) and co-directed by Professor Maria Evandrou, Professor Sue Heath (both at Southampton) and Professor Paul Boyle (University of St Andrews).

Studentship - The domestic and housing transitions of LGBT young people
This PhD project aims to explore the interaction between sexuality and youth transitions through focusing on the housing and relationship experiences of LGBT young people in their late teens and twenties. This will contribute to a strand of research focusing on the dynamics of household change and living arrangements across the life course, which includes a project currently under way on the housing pathways of 25-34 year olds who live alone or in shared households.

It is an ESRC +3 studentship linked to the ESRC Research Centre for Population Change, where the student will work under the direction of Professor Sue Heath, one of the Centre’s Co-Directors.

The application deadline has now passed.
