22 PhD studentships supported by ADR UK have now commenced. Hosted by supervisors across 13 of the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs), these students will access the full breadth of ADR UK flagship datasets to conduct quantitative research and answer policy-relevant research questions.
This £1.9 million investment by ADR UK supports the ADR UK Training and Capacity Building Strategy (2021-2026), which aims to increase the number of researchers trained to analyse complex linked administrative datasets. It also complements existing ESRC-funded programmes to grow awareness of and opportunities for using administrative data across the life course of researchers.
PhD noticeboard: A new addition to the Learning Hub
Check out our new noticeboard for PhD students, hosted on the ADR UK Learning Hub. This noticeboard is intended for any PhD students using ADR UK flagship datasets, and includes information on upcoming events, training resources, and relevant placement opportunities.
The ADR UK PhD studentships cohort will be supported by ADR UK to ensure they can make the most of their studies, including facilitating networking opportunities between students and supervisors. The PhD noticeboard also includes content exclusive to this cohort, flagged with an icon, and will be regularly updated with new information and features.
