Vacancy Information
IOE, UCL’s Faculty of Education and Society, are pleased to announce the availability of a fully funded three-year doctoral studentship, starting 1st October 2022 as part of a research project in partnership with Oxford University, ‘A portrait of the teaching of empire, migration and belonging in English secondary schools’ (EMB ). The project and studentship are funded by Pears Foundation.
Studentship Description
‘A portrait of teaching the teaching of empire, migration and belonging in English secondary schools’: overview of project aims
Working together with the Department for Education at Oxford University, UCL is excited to embark upon an important three-year research study which will explore teaching and learning about empire, migration and belonging in England’s secondary schools. The ultimate goal of the project is to provide a robust, nuanced and comprehensive evidence-base to inform the creation of programmes of professional development able to respond directly to the needs and experiences of learners, be that teachers or the young people in their classrooms. Our primary concern is ultimately to support confident, informed and pedagogically sound classroom practice. 
The research places significant importance on current socio-cultural, political and academic discourses and on the varied, interconnecting invocations of empire, migration and belonging they commonly employ. Our intention is to examine the impact of these framings on the understandings and experiences of both young people and their teachers. Throughout the project, we will consult closely with a diverse range of stakeholders and are especially concerned to involve communities with lived experience of the legacies of empire and migration in a British context whose voices remain underrepresented in related academic and educational research.
Fully-funded, three year doctoral studentship.
As part of our commitment to support and provide a platform for new voices and perspectives in this area – and in order to ensure the longevity and sustainability of this work beyond the initial research study – we invite applications for a fully funded three-year doctoral studentship to work alongside the EMB project team. We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates as they are currently under-represented within UK doctoral education . (Further information on UCL’s approaches to equality, diversion and inclusion are available here https://www.ucl.ac.uk/equality-diversity-inclusion/)
The successful applicant will produce an original research study related to at least one of the project’s three key empirical strands:
Understanding existing classroom practice from the perspectives of teachers: what is currently taught about issues of empire, migration and belonging in England’s secondary schools, how, why and by whom?
Exploring student perspectives: what do young people currently know and understand about histories of empire, migration and belonging in the context of contemporary Britain?
Analysis of changing representations: in what manner, and to what ends are notions of empire, migration and belonging represented in school textbooks and other teaching materials from 1890 to the present day. 
The student will be supervised by Dr Alice Pettigrew (Principal Investigator) as well as receiving support and guidance from Dr Jason Todd (Project Leader, based at Oxford University). A second subsidiary UCL supervisor will be appointed following application in response to the specific focus and/or proposed methodological approach of the successful doctorate.
Person Specification
The successful applicant will:
Have a Master’s level degree in a relevant subject (essential ).
Demonstrate an understanding and informed interest in the themes of empire, migration and belonging as they relate to the English  education system (essential)
Demonstrate an understanding of research methods appropriate to educational settings (essential)
Be able to identify, outline and provide a compelling rationale for an independent doctoral level study related to at least one of the EMB project’s three empirical strands (essential)

Be able and motivated to contribute to a wider research culture and community through regular engagement as a member of the wider EMB project team (essential)
Demonstrate the ability to communicate complex information effectively, both verbally and in writing (essential)
Have experience of working with schools and/or young people and an appreciation of their needs (desirable).
Eligibility
Following completion of the recruitment process, the successful studentship candidate is expected to apply for and meet the entry requirements for the Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment MPhil/PhD programme.  An offer of a place on this programme is required in order for the studentship to be awarded.  
The studentship includes funding for the annual programme tuition fee equivalent only to the UK student tuition fee rate.  International students are eligible to apply but must fund the difference in tuition fees from independent sources.  .
