PASCAL, Department of Adult and Continuing Education within the Faculty of Education and the Department of Urban Studies at the University of
Glasgow are offering a full Kelvin Smith scholarship for a 4 year PhD to start in September 2009.
This scholar will work closely with Culture and Sport Glasgow to develop a range of key performance measures and indicators to assess the nature
and extent of impact on local communities of events of different scales - international, civic and neighbourhood. The focus will be on non-economic impacts, especially in relation to social inclusion, community cohesion, cultural capital and mental and physical health and wellbeing. The work will be undertaken during the period running up to the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014. There is a real concern to better understand the impact of the Games and, in particular, its legacy for citizens of Glasgow especially for those who live in deprived areas in the city. In addition to promoting sports participation, an
opportunity of the Games is its impact on morale - civic, community, family and individual - generated by hosting a global event. Working through PASCAL, the scholar will draw on international experience to support CSG in learning and applying the lessons from previous large scale events from around the world.
The deadline for applications is Friday 14th August. Interviews for candidates being considered for the award will take place on 24th August. The scholarship will commence on 22nd September 2009.
