Would you like to do a PhD investigating the teaching and learning of accessibility?

We are currently seeking funding for two outstanding PhD candidates (UK-based or international) to come to work with us here at the University of Southampton, researching the teaching and learning of accessibility. As a doctoral researcher, you will join the Centre for Research in Inclusion at Southampton Education School at the University of Southampton – one of the UK’s best Education departments. Here, you will work on new research into the teaching and learning of digital accessibility. Potential topics for pedagogic research include learner perspectives on accessibility; or ageing in accessibility education.

Proposals can either be candidate-led (initiated by you) or developed with us. We are currently seeking funding from the South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership and Southampton’s Presidential Scholarships through a competitive process, with a view to PhDs beginning in Autumn 2020/Spring 2021. 

For more information, please get in touch with Principal Investigator and project lead Dr Sarah Lewthwaite.
