Collaborative Doctoral Award Studentship Opportunity

Published: 15 May 2013

Winchester School of Art and Tate Liverpool have been awarded a major AHRC grant to research "Creative Communities in Art & Design since the 1960s: Lessons for SocioEconomic Regeneration in a Globalized World". As part of a seven-year developmental project, we are now looking to appoint the second of four consecutive PhD studentships, to run from 2013 - 2016.

Tate Liverpool and Winchester School of Art are committed to developing long-term joint research programmes that have real world impacts on society, education and the arts. This research post will involve work between Tate Liverpool and Winchester School of Art research centres.  One of the country's leading art and design schools, Winchester School of Art is part of the University of Southampton, a Russell Group university and one of the UK's top ten research universities.

The research project is concerned with an historical and critical analysis of artists and designers associated with Postmodernism and the rise of virtual reality technologies and sensibilities during the 1980s and 1990s. Scope exists for the successful candidate to take the project in a particular direction with the agreement of the supervisors. The PhD award is for three years with full-time fees and an annual bursary paid by the AHRC.

Please contact for further particulars. The deadine for applications is 14th June 2013.
