Subject: PhD studentship in Copyright and Digital Scholarship

EPrints Services are funding a PhD studentship in Digital Rights and
Digital Scholarship at the EPSRC Web Science Doctoral Training Centre
at the University of Southampton.
The Web has had a huge impact on society and on the scientific and
scholarly communications process. As more attention is paid to new
e-research and e-learning methodologies it is time to stand back and
investigate how rights and responsibilities are understood when
"copying", "publishing" and "syndicating" are fundamental activities
of the interconnected digital world.

Applicants with a technical background (a good Bachelors degree in
Computer Science, Information Science, Information Technology or
similar) are invited for this 4-year research programme, which begins
in October 2009 with a 1-year taught MSc in Web Science and is
followed by a three year PhD supervised jointly by the School of Law
and the School of Electronics and Computer Science. The full
four-year scholarships (including stipend) is available to UK

EPrints Services provide repository hosting, training and bespoke
development for the research community and are funding this research
opportunity to promote understanding of the context of the future
scholarly environment.
