Work With Us

Postgraduate (PhD) Research

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.


CREATe welcomes applications from researchers interested in working with us. Interested applicants are invited to submit an expression of interest identifying the main lines of research to be developed as a joint research proposal with the rest of the CREATe team. The candidate will benefit from a unique team of passionate researchers in a wide scientific area that covers law, economics, computer science, management, sociology, psychology, ethnography and critical studies. We are particularly interested in interdisciplinary proposals that combine the above scientific areas with innovative and empirical methodologies within the research mandate of CREATe (see our research programme). Find out about the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), a fund supporting research training and career development focused on innovation skills, on our Post-Doc page.


Opportunities for PhD studentships, interns and other CREATe staff are posted on our Opportunities page.
