The College of Business and Social Sciences (BSS) is a multi-disciplinary research-focused College which brings together researchers in Aston Business School (ABS), Aston Law School (ALS) and the School of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). We are determined to find ways to further develop our research environment, particularly our postgraduate student provision, and as such we are offering up to six fully-funded PhD studentships.

To be successful, you will need to demonstrate your enthusiasm, diligence and organised approach as well as having a research idea that resonates with our departmental and research centre expertise. You can explore potential areas of interest, and supervisors, using the links found in the 'Research Areas' section below. We also have a number of externally co-funded projects that you may wish to apply for in the 'Externally Funded Projects' section. Full details are also provided on the application process, the criteria for success and financial support provided.

The studentships are for full-time study over three years, commencing 1st October 2021 with a completion date of 30th September 2024.
