Dear Discussion List,
I’m happy to announce the next round of funded PhD studentships at Sunderland - these are great full-time or part-time opportunities for curators.
AHRC-funded PhD studentships in Arts and Design 2016
Sunderland University has offered AHRC-funded PhD studentships in Arts and Design since 2004, and since 2008 also as part of a partnership with University of Northumbria. Each year from 2014 to 2019, PhD studentships in Art and Design are being offered as part of the Northumbria-Sunderland AHRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Art and Design which works across Art and Design research groups. Before applying for an AHRC studentship, you should make preliminary enquiries with the subject specialists listed. You might be particularly interested in:
Digital Art / Curation: contact Professor Beryl Graham <http://www.sunderland.ac.uk/research/areasofresearch/creativeandculturalpracticesbeacon/ahrcstudentships-digitalart/>
Design (Sunderland): contact Professor Beryl Graham or Dr. Andrew Richardson <http://www.sunderland.ac.uk/research/areasofresearch/creativeandculturalpracticesbeacon/ahrcstudentships-design/>
Application deadline - Monday 5th March 2016, 5pm.
Interviews - week commencing 4th April, 2016
I’m happy to announce some more opportunities for PhD studentships, and previous applicants are very welcome to apply again. This year, in addition to Curating New Media art, we also have Design opportunities, which can include Curating Design, and Generative/Open Source subjects. Current students include Dani Admiss (former Assistant Curator on Digital Revolution, Barbican), Dawn Bothwell (CIRCA) and Liam Jefferies (MA Design RCA). Do feel free to chat to me informally if you are interested in full-time or part-time research.
Please note that these studentships have some UK residency requirements - see AHRC's Student Funding Guide pages 92 – 98. http://www.ahrc.ac.uk/SiteCollectionDocuments/Student-Funding-Guide.pdf
