Dear H-Animal Colleagues
Please do encourage any interested students to apply for this studentship.
The Sheffield Animal Studies Research Centre and Grantham Institute for Sustainable Futures (University of Sheffield, UK) are currently advertising an exciting fully-funded (international) interdisciplinary animal studies PhD studentship, working across the fields of social accounting, environmental studies, and social and narrative theory. The student will be based in Sheffield's Management School, and co-supervised by Jill Atkins (Professor of Accountancy) and Robert McKay (Senior Lecturer in Contemporary Literature). Looking to narrative and other models, the project is an exciting opportunity to work across disciplines to explore the question of how contemporary corporations might be expected to account for and report their impacts on biodiversity/species extinction.
Expertise or prior education in accountancy is not required and relevant training will be available. We are keen to hear from interested applicants with an education in disciplines across the social sciences and critical humanities. The student will be joining the UK's most vibrant animal studies community, with around 20 postgraduate, postdoctoral and tenured academic researchers.
Deadline 23rd March 2017
