EBED supports bridge PhD; candidate wanted


English Bridge Education & Development and partners are funding a 3 year PhD Studentship in the Sociology of Bridge - Bridging the Gap: An Exploration of Transitions in Play through the Lifecourse.

The results of this research studentship will be beneficial to the wider bridge community, providing insights into why people play, as well as what helps and hinders their learning. The findings will also be used to create resources to promote the mind sport to different age groups and to ensure that those who play are enabled to get as much from the game as possible.

A suitable PhD candidate is sought. Bridge knowledge is not essential. For more details see this page of the EBED website, and for full further information and application details please see here.

Queries about the position should be sent to Prof. Samantha Punch - s.v.punch@stir.ac.uk
