A three-year doctoral studentship is available for candidates who wish to conduct original research into the history of the consumption and control of psychoactive substances and intoxicants in Asia in the first half twentieth century. It is funded by the Wellcome Trust as part of the project with the title ‘The Asian Cocaine Crisis: Pharmaceuticals, consumers and control in Asia, c. 1900-1945’.  Professor James Mills of The Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) Glasgow at the University of Strathclyde is Principal Investigator and will act as first supervisor ( see www.strath.ac.uk/cshhh ).  The team is currently working in China, India, Korea and Myanmar so applications are particularly encouraged from those seeking to research in other Asian contexts or within Asian diasporas
