Inspiring Children's FuturesNew! Inspiring Children's Futures Centre for Doctoral Training

A new Doctoral Research Centre for Inspiring Children's Futures was established in 2021, initiated through the generous support of University alum, Leslie Stretch. Read more about this generous donation.

We welcome proposals for projects from applicants with suitable qualifications who are interested in the specific focus of our Doctoral Research Centre, set out at the link, and. We especially welcome interdisciplinary projects that bring together these disciplines.

We invite self-funding applicants to propose a 3pg research project proposal, including the research analysis that these questions might constitute, and that align with the Principles, Attributes, Themes, Dimensions and Focus of this DRC.

Periodically, fully-funded studentships also become available and advertised here and on the Strathclyde University website

Professor Jennifer Davidson, Executive Director, Institute for Inspiring Children’s Futures, says:

“This is a really exciting opportunity to work as part of a brilliant and passionate multidisciplinary team of people, to generate new knowledge to make the world a better place for children, and to work with others to apply that knowledge across policy and practice around the world, as we work toward a post-COVID recovery that keeps children at its heart—especially the children facing the greatest adversities."
