*PhD scholarship: HyperConnecting Youth: Virtual Pedagogy & Global Issues*

The University of Roehampton offers a scholarship for a PhD student to
undertake PhD studies and research under the supervision of Dr. M.
Kontopodis in the context of  project “HyperConnecting Youth: Virtual
Pedagogy & Global Issues”. Broadly speaking, this project aims to further
develop critical and socio-cultural approaches to education in the context
of today’s virtual era within the broader frame of the Paulo Freire
Institute/ RISE at the University of Roehampton:

Further information on the project is given here:

The studentship begins in September 2015 and covers living costs of about
£16.000 per year for 3 years (or part time equivalent for five years). It
also covers full tuition fees for British and European students (£4,052 per
year). International students are unfortunately required to pay the
difference in tuition fees through their own resources (the total fee for
international students is £12.000 per year from which £4,052 will be
covered).

This scholarship is part of a broader Roehampton program for PhD
studentships, which includes 50 studentships in total in a wide range of
topics. The deadline for applications is midnight 5th May 2015. The full
information for all studentships is provided here:
http://www.roehampton.ac.uk/vcscholarships

We are particularly interested in students who:
•have a solid background in educational science or related
social-scientific disciplines
•have experience in working with “ voiceless" urban young populations in
school or after-school/ community contexts (and eventually speak their
language(s) and/or belong to/ comes from such populations)
•are experienced in qualitative research methods and data interpretation
•are skilled in new media technologies (with basic programming, design and
database management skills) or at least eager to develop such skills

The concrete field of research is not specified yet (international students
are welcome to apply and may engage in research in their country).

Last but not least: We are happy to undertake supervision of PhD students
who can secure funding from other resources on related topics such as:
global & intercultural education; digital media in teaching & learning;
schooling, diversity & marginalization (Dies kann auch auf Deutsch
geschehen / hablamos español/ français/ português)

Interested candidates are welcome to contact Dr. Michalis Kontopodis
