We currently have funded PhD opportunities at Sheffield Hallam and are looking for applicants! Places are available across the majority of disciplines, but we’re also keen for people to apply in media, communication and related areas. The deadline is 29 April. Two of my current PhD students were recruited through this scheme and across the university there have been several places awarded in the last few years. I’m personally interested in supervising projects relating to media representation, television, social media, celebrity, religion or gender but between the team we cover most areas so do have a look at our application guidelines at the links provided and get in touch if you have queries!
I’ve also been part of the team developing a new MA in Global Media and Communication, which we launch in September. This course is especially aimed at people who want to go into research-related careers and we’re excited to add it to our existing portfolio of courses – more details to come, but we have an open evening on Wed 22 May for all PG courses at SHU if you want to know more.
