ICTs and Development PhD Fellowships at Manchester
The University of Manchester is this year providing a
set of graduate teaching fellowships which can be used
to support PhD study in topics on ICTs/information
systems and socio- economic development. The deadline
for PhD application to be considered for a fellowship
is May 6.
Only very high-quality candidates will be considered.
We are typically looking for a roughly
distinction-level grade in an MSc from a Western or
Western-equivalent university in an appropriate topic
(which includes but is not limited to information
systems, management, or development); good English
skills; evidence of teaching capability; and a
relevant topic for study backed by a proposal that
demonstrates an ability to work with academic theory.
Any selected candidate will join the University's
Development Informatics Group; a fifteen-strong unit
studying various aspects of the relation between
information systems, ICTs and development. Given the
nature of the fellowship, candidates will need to be
based full-time in Manchester.
Any topic related to development informatics will be
considered although we have particular concentrations
at present on: e-commerce and development; information
systems in small/micro-enterprise; the ICT (esp.
software) sector; theorising e-development; ICTs in
mountain regions; Internet diffusion in Africa and the
Middle East; and impact assessment of ICTs in
