The partnership of EBED, UK Bridge Unions and University of Stirling have provided funding for a 3 year PhD Studentship (fees plus living expenses) for the first ever PhD in the Sociology of Bridge: Bridging the Gap: An Exploration of Transitions in Play through the Lifecourse. We are looking for a PhD candidate ideally with a masters, or an excellent undergraduate degree, preferably within the social sciences. No knowledge of bridge is required. Bridge is one of the world’s most widely played, stimulating and challenging card games that requires skill, concentration and practice. Understanding what drives individuals to take up bridge and what keeps people playing across the lifecourse is at the heart of this PhD studentship. Bridge provides a contemporary example to understand the role of a mind sport in developing social well-being through community participation at different ages. For further details please see attached.
