PhD Studentship with University of Edinburgh

Phd Studentship Opportunity

We're an educational charity that helps young people defy their limitations, so they become strong, resilient and curious, ready for the challenges of life.

Using learning and adventures in the wild, we partner with schools, colleges, employers and youth groups to teach their young people the most important lesson they could ever learn: to believe in themselves.

We’re excited to be working in partnership with The University of Edinburgh and the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science to support a PhD studentship that will research a new area of enquiry for The Outward Bound Trust and the wider field of outdoor learning: “The influence of mobile devices and social media on the transfer of learning in residential outdoor experiences.”

The PhD will be joint-funded through an ESRC grant and by The Outward Bound Trust, and will start in October 2020.

Project details, eligibility and how to apply

The closing date for applications is Friday 6 March and interviews will be held at the University of Edinburgh on Monday 27 April.
