PhD studentship opportunity - the role and impact of 3 Faiths Forum in fostering peaceful relations (Funded)

19 April 2016

Coventry University is offering one full-time PhD studentship to a well-qualified individual, to start in September 2016. The studentship will support our partnership with 3FF (Three Faiths Forum), one of the leading interfaith and intercultural organisations in the UK.

Proposals are invited for a PhD project exploring the role and impact of 3FF in fostering peaceful relations. We welcome proposals that will provide new insights about the difference 3FF’s work makes to the communities it works with, including young people, schools, universities, students, religious groups, members of Parliament, women and local communities. We welcome proposals that are interdisciplinary, innovative and use participatory research methods. Proposals should challenge existing ideas, expand current thinking and contribute to change within 3FF and the communities it works with.
 
The PhD studentship will be based within the Faith and Peaceful Relations Research Group, one of six research groups in the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations. The PhD student will work 6 hours per week as a Research Assistant within the research group. The studentship will cover UK/EU or overseas fee equivalence plus a bursary of £14057 per annum for three years.
