Invitation to staff to contribute to the SCDTP training plan

(A pdf copy of this call can be downloaded here for sharing this news!)


The ESRC-funded South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership (SCDTP) includes MSc and PhD students, and Post-doctoral Fellows from the Universities of Southampton, Brighton and Portsmouth (and Chichester from Oct 2024), in a range of disciplines in Social Sciences (full list of disciplines here). As part of the renewed funding for 2024-9, the SCDTP has a dedicated budget on the organisation and delivery of cutting edge training for SCDTP students/ Fellows, which, where possible, will also be opened up to non-SCDTP funded students in the partner Universities and the rest of the DTP network.

We invite all colleagues in relevant disciplines to submit their interest in offering a training course/ event in 2023-24 or 2024-25. Other suggested areas which reflect your substantive and methodological expertise are welcome, but we are particularly interested in developing training in the following specified areas, which were outlined in our bid to the funder:

  • Ethics in interdisciplinary transnational research
  • Participatory research with children and young people
  • Machine learning approaches in Economics
  • Advanced and specialist data skills
  • Benefits of Artificial Intelligence in research
  • Queer methodologies
  • Ethics for social media research

You may also find it useful to read the ESRC’s expectations from Postgraduate Training and Development here.

The training can take place in person or online, this academic year or next. We are interested in trialling various formats including masterclasses (half-day to 2-day events), interactive workshops, knowledge exchanges, or summer schools.

Please note: The renumeration of your time in preparing and delivering the training, and any travel and resource costs incurred will be covered by the SCDTP.

Next steps: If you are interested in registering your interest in this, please contact Melanie Nind by Friday 1st March 2024, or you can discuss it with any of the SCDTP leadership team: Athina Vlachantoni, Phil Haynes, Tamsin Bradley, Suzie Everley, Jing Lin

We look forward to hearing your exciting training ideas!
