The Centre for Research in Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (CRESTEM) of the School of Education, Communication and Society, King’s College London, has a full-time doctoral studentship available from September 1, 2017. The PhD studentship will be funded by the Rosalind Driver Scholarship Fund. The Fund was set-up in honour of Professor Driver’s research concerning students’ ideas in science. The studentship will pay fees and a stipend of £20,000 pa for three years.
The Centre is looking for an imaginative and enthusiastic student to undertake a PhD study examining the views of key stakeholders in environmental education and the related practices of current science education curricula, policy directives and funding initiatives.
It anticipates that the research will inform future debates relating to the content of science curricula and to policies and guidelines relating to wider school values and practices. Although the topic is within the field of science education, applications are welcome from students from wider social science backgrounds who are interested in applying their own areas of specialism to the field of science education / environmental education.
