Application form

Who should apply?

Applications are invited from highly motivated doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, working in fields around development studies, science and technology studies, innovation and policy studies, and with an interest in ideas and practice of transformations, uncertainty, political ecology, natural resources, and methodologies for sustainability.

There is a premium on interdisciplinary approaches and on interests and orientations that converge with the work of the STEPS Centre. Numbers are limited, so recruitment will be by refereed selection.

Participants will be required to pay a fee of GBP 1,000.00 (one thousand pounds), but a number of bursaries are available to applicants from non-OECD countries of birth (http://bit.ly/OECDlist).

A 25% discount is applied to fees for anyone enrolled in the SeNSS programme, or who are students/post-docs at the University of Sussex or at the Institute of Development Studies.

All participants are expected to agree with the statement on harassment and discrimination.

When is the course?

The Summer School 2018 will take place from 13-24 May 2019 at the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex, UK. Students are expected to attend the full course (10 days).
