Dear Colleagues, 
 
Apologies for cross posting. In was hoping you may be able to forward this to those who may be interested in undertaking a PhD, and if appropriate, consider applying.
 
Swansea University is offering 16 fully-funded scholarships for full-time doctoral study, commencing in October 2019, supported by its flagship Swansea University Research Excellence Scholarships Scheme (SURES). Five eligible projects are in the School of Management and three are broadly in the area of regional development and the impact of nationally significant infrastructural projects (NSIPs) in tourism-dependent areas.
 
Bursary: fees at Home/EU rate and a maintenance stipend at UKRI rates, each for a maximum period of three years. In addition, £1,000 per annum is available to support training, engagement with industry and international collaboration.
Deadline: 4th. January 2019
Start date: October 2019
Eligibility: Home/EU (Applicants liable for overseas fees are not eligible to apply)
 
We are looking to recruit exceptional candidates, capable of submitting a PhD thesis within 3 years. The award of a scholarship is conditional upon the recipient achieving either a first class honours degree and/or a distinction at Masters’ level in a relevant area of the social sciences (e.g. organization studies, sociology, tourism, geography, anthropology or migration studies). All applications must include a structured research proposal for the chosen project (you are advised to develop this in consultation with the identified supervisory team). Applications submitted without a research proposal will not be considered.  
 
Project One: The Impact of Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs) on Worker and Community Wellbeing: Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Station. Supervisors: Professor Nigel Morgan, [log in to unmask] and Dr Jocelyn Finniear, [log in to unmask]
 
Summary: 
NSIPs can affect the environment and the cultural heritage and place-based values of communities and landscapes. The proposed Wylfa Newydd Nuclear Power Station (WNP) on Anglesey will impact its communities and its tourism sector. Given the tourism’s centrality to Anglesey’s (and Wales’) economic and social wellbeing, this study will be crucial to evaluating WNP’s construction workforces’ relationships with/impacts on the Island’s communities and visitors. The study would adopt a multi-method approach (interviews, online surveys, tranquillity indices monitoring, etc.) to: i) understand; ii) monitor; iii) make recommendations on the interactions between the construction workers, local communities, visitors and tourism stakeholders.
 
Project Two: Investigating the Energy-Tourism Nexus. Supervisors: Professor Sarah Nicholls, [log in to unmask] and Dr Maggie Miller, [log in to unmask]
 
Summary: 
The relationship between the production and consumption of energy, and the provision and enjoyment of tourism activities, is symbiotic and complex. The tourism industry continues to grow and is estimated to contribute 5-10% of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. The energy-tourism nexus can be conceptualised from three perspectives: energy as a key prerequisite of the tourism system; energy as a detriment to tourism, most notably in terms of the physical, environmental and visual impacts of energy infrastructure on the tourism experience; energy sites/facilities as tourism attractions. This project will investigate all three of these dimensions, with a special focus on Anglesey, host to the proposed WNP. The project will adopt a mixed methods approach, combining traditional survey techniques with semi-structured interviews and other qualitative data collection methods in order to gather a large, rich dataset.
 
Project Three: Developing Regional Economies: Evaluating the Regional Impact of a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project. Supervisors: Dr Paul White, [log in to unmask] and Dr Jocelyn Finniear, [log in to unmask]
 
Summary: 
This project focuses on the Swansea Bay City Region Deal as a means of evaluating engagement with locally domiciled business, community and labour force. The City Deal, akin to the Northern Powerhouse and Hinckley Point C, represents a means of delivering sustainable social and economic benefits to a given region. However, the level and extent to which these benefits are experienced by community members, beyond the claims of policymakers and developers, remains open to question. This investigation seeks to provide in-depth empirical evidence through a comparative ethnography of different stakeholders to examine the societal and regional impact of these forms of infrastructure projects.
  
How to apply: To apply please complete and return the necessary documents to Dr Vivienne Jenkins ([log in to unmask]) using the relevant scholarship code (e.g. SURESSOM01, SURESSOM02, SURESSOM04), available from: https://www.swansea.ac.uk/postgraduate/scholarships/research/business-management-sures-phd-2019.php   
 
Applicants should note that scholarships will be awarded in an internal competitive process and College/School shortlisting panels are expected to sit between 21 January and 8 February 2019. Shortlisting panels may contact candidates within this period. Interview panels are expected to sit in the week commencing 4 March 2019.
