The studentship will be supervised within the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) Glasgow. A collaboration between the University of Strathclyde and Glasgow Caledonian University, it has grown since 2005 to become Scotland’s leading centre for the history of health and medicine.
The CSHHH Glasgow has an outstanding track-record in postgraduate progression. PhD students meet on a weekly basis with their supervisors, are required to attend six-monthly progress panels, and are encouraged to plan publications while completing their doctorate.
Students have opportunities to build a wider set of skills through teaching on undergraduate history of medicine courses, organising seminar series and workshops, through internships with organisations such as the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) and NHS Scotland, and participating in the full range of activities of a thriving research centre.
The Centre’s collaboration with Shanghai University means that s/he will be able to spend a fourth year on a fully-funded fellowship in China to complete writing-up if necessary.
