Course summary

Using interdisciplinary approaches on PhD in Employment Research, you will tackle high quality social science research in employment. Warwick's Institute for Employment Research provides unparalleled teaching at a leading international social science research centre. Course overview As a research-only department within the University of Warwick, the work of the Institute for Employment Research is diverse and interdisciplinary and provides wide-ranging opportunities for prospective doctoral candidates to engage in high quality social science doctoral-level research which is policy-relevant, as well as being academically rigorous. The IER’s doctoral programme aims to train independent social science researchers who can develop and deploy theory effectively, assess the relative merits of different methodological approaches, choose appropriate empirical methods, manage well their time and other research resources effectively. Being located in a specialist research environment will provide a wider understanding of the research process (including dissemination, funding, relationships with sponsors, and different organisational models for research). Our extensive research portfolio has meant that we have fostered and maintained links with national and international research centres; UK government departments and agencies; European Commission and other international bodies; local authorities and sectoral organisations, as well as extensive academic networks. Supervision for IER doctoral students will be provided by academic researchers with significant experience of undertaking research across a range of topics in employment research. We supervise a wide range of students from a variety of different countries and backgrounds and welcome this diversity among our student body. Former students have gone on to work in a variety of areas in different countries, including academia, government, the private sector or third sector organisations. We also offer a joint PhD in Employment Research with our partner institution Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
