ESRC-funded PhD studentship: The role of police sergeants in shaping frontline discretion
Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology
Closing: March 13, 2020
This ESRC-funded PhD studentship is a collaboration between the University of Liverpool and the College of Policing. It will provide an observation-based analysis of the neglected issue of how sergeants shape the work of officers they supervise, generating original insights into frontline policing and informing the development of role-specific training. By collaborating closely with external partners, in particular the College of Policing, the successful PhD student will have the opportunity to engage in knowledge-exchange with end-users of the research.
Eligibility Criteria: As this is a three year (+3) studentship applicants must hold (or expect to be awarded in 2020) a Masters degree in a relevant subject (e.g. Criminology, Sociology, Social Policy, Social Research Methods), which includes a significant component of relevant training in social science research.

Centre for Criminal Justice Studies, University of Leeds
Closing: March 13, 2020
Awards are available on +3 (PhD) basis or on a 1+3 basis (MA Social Research (Interdisciplinary) plus PhD.
This ESRC PhD studentship is a collaboration of the University of Leeds and South Yorkshire Police. Drawing primarily on the disciplines of criminology and sociology, it will explore the recent reconfiguration of ‘neighbourhood policing’ through a discourse of ‘vulnerability’. It will explore the extent to and the ways in which the emergence of ‘vulnerability’ as a core priority within policing potentially reconfigures the very purpose of public policing – how ‘demand’ for policing is understood, responded to, and managed – at the local, neighbourhood level. It will question whether the institutionalisation of ‘vulnerability’ refocuses policing priorities and protection onto erstwhile stigmatised populations and marginalised groups, traditionally seen as problematic due to their interactions with authorities, lifestyles or circumstances, and the extent to which it potentially shifts the delivery of policing towards an emphasis on proactive prevention and harm minimisation from a public health perspective. The successful candidate will work closely with South Yorkshire Police, collecting diverse sources of data with which to interrogate the research questions including observations, interviews, focus groups and administrative data.
Supervisors: Professors Stuart Lister and Adam Crawford
Funding on offer: Full awards provide UK/EU academic fees and a maintenance grant at standard Research Council rates (£15,009 in Session 2019/20) for full-time study, together with other allowances if appropriate. EU applicants will be eligible for an award paying tuition fees only, except in exceptional circumstances, or where residency has been established for more than 3 years prior to the start of the course.

Assessing the police demand caused by Serious and Organised Acquisitive Crime
Serious and organised crime is estimated to cost the United Kingdom at least £37 billion each year (UK Parliament, 2019) and the estimated scale of organised acquisitive crime is £680 million (Home Office, 2019). However, it can be argued that the true scale of serious and organised acquisitive crime is unknown. Without a standardised definition of serious and organised acquisitive crime nor a consistent reporting mechanism, there have been difficulties in assessing the demand associated with this crime on Police services.
This project intends to enhance the national understanding of serious and organised acquisitive crime and increase the police service’s capability for assessing the demand. The research will involve working closely with police forces and utilising police data to provide insight to some of the definitional problems surrounding the topic, assess the current demand caused by this type of crime to police forces and make suggestions for the assessment of future demand for serious and organised acquisitive crime.
