[ecrea] PhD Scholarship in Media & Democracy at Leicester

Fri Mar 07 19:45:52 GMT 2014

The Department of Media & Communication at the University of Leicester is offering a fully funded PhD studentship in the area of Media & Democracy. This studentship will support the development of a new research group in the Department - the Media and Democracy Group - which brings together academics working on political communication in both traditional and digital media.

A key development in the area of political communication is, following developments in the political theory of deliberation, an analysis of the affordances that media provide opportunities for political engagement and participation. We welcome applications from suitably qualified applicants who can show evidence of an interest in this area and a viable research proposal.

The successful applicant will be supervised by Dr Jonathan Ong <> ((jco10 /at/ <mailto:(jco10 /at/>) and Professor Peter Lunt <> ((pl108 /at/ <mailto:(pl108 /at/>).

Application closing date is 31 March 2014. Applicants must be able to start in October 2014.
