The Civic University: what is the future role of the University? University of Greenwich as a place-based civic institution
We are offering an interdisciplinary PhD scholarship (Vice Chancellor Scholarship) to develop the vision of Greenwich as a Civic University. The Civic University, an old concept but for UKHE today a new ‘business model’ (Goddard et al., 2016), requires an ability to integrate teaching, research and engagement with the outside world in a way that enhances all participants. This VC scholarship will develop a framework to ensure that research has socio-economic impact, and that teaching has strong community involvement with the long-term objective of widening participation.
We are looking for a PhD candidate with cross-disciplinary Political Economy and Sociology experience and an interest in Education. See here for further details. Deadline 20 Feb.
