Dear Discussion list,
I thought that you might be interested in these professional development opportunities:
National Productivity Investment Fund PhD Studentships 2017: University of Sunderland
Available part-time or full-time, these funded stipends of around £14,500 pa ft are great professional development opportunities for designers, artists, digital media creatives, curators, academics and others.
As part of its Industrial Strategy, the government recently announced a National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) to support an additional 1000 PhD studentships to start on 1 October 2017. The Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership and Northumbria-Sunderland Consortium in Art and Design have jointly secured 12 awards, funded by the AHRC, to support research in the two areas identified by AHRC as the focus of these awards: Design and The Creative Sector.
* At the University of Sunderland, we are offering exciting ‘Supervisor-led’ opportunities to research with partners:
LITTLE INVENTORS WORLDWIDE LTD
NORTHERN GALLERY OF CONTEMPORARY ART (NGCA)
* You can also propose your own research with other partners via the ‘Applicant-led route’.
Application and procedure details are available from the web site above.
