PhD opportunities

CREATe at the University of Glasgow offers unique, world-class opportunities for doctoral research. We supervise PhD students working across a range of disciplines including cultural economics, empirical legal studies, intellectual property law, policy studies and studies of management of the creative industries. Our ethos for PhD training involves fostering an active cohort of researchers and including students in scholarly activities of the Centre, including conferences, impact activity and digital resource curation. For an idea of topics of interest, please see the fields outlined in our research programme. CREATe also regularly hosts visiting PhD students for periods ranging from several weeks to one year. Proposals for bold, interdisciplinary work are welcome.

Information for Prospective PhD Students

There are a number of ways to pursue PhD studies with CREATe. When available, we will advertise funded PhD studentships associated with specific grants. You may browse these upcoming and previous CREATe funded PhD research opportunities on our opportunities page here.

Alternatively, prospective students may contact us with a proposal for self-funded or externally funded doctoral research. If you have a research proposal prepared and have identified potential supervisor(s), please get in touch with us using our contact information or email a member of faculty directly to discuss your interests. We encourage prospective PhD students to seek external funding as part of the application process.
