The Scholarship is open to applicants who are ordinarily resident in the EEA or Switzerland.
This award is offered in partnership with the Department of Physics. Wolfson College will contribute one third of the funding required for a full UK Research Council postgraduate studentship.

Professor Mark Casson (University of Reading) and Professor Marc Ventresca (Wolfson College, Oxford) Social scientists study phenomena in which people play a fundamental role: the economy, law, the internet, Brexit, and so on. People can generally do whatever they like, and so their behaviour is not governed by rules in the same way as the phenomena studied by physicists and chemists. Given this, what kinds of questions can social scientists answer, and how do they do it?Networking16 - 16Jan JanScience Table DinnerTuesday 16 January -6:30pm to 7:30pm
