Three AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Awards in History of Art

Posted on 25 May 2011

The Department of History of Art is delighted to announce that it has been awarded three fully-funded PhD studentships by the Arts and Humanities Research Council to commence in October 2011.

The studentships have been awarded under the Collaborative Doctoral Award scheme and will involve significant experience of working in the partner institutions: the National Gallery, Tate and Glasgow Museums.

'The International Context of the Art of St Ives 1948-60' (PDF , 365kb): supervised by Dr Michael White (University of York) and Dr Chris Stephens (Tate Britain).

'The Virgin's House and other Architectural Narratives in Renaissance Marian Painting' (PDF , 335kb): supervised by Dr Amanda Lillie (University of York) and Mr Luke Syson (National Gallery).

'William Burrell, Thomas & Drake and the Transatlantic Trade in Stained Glass, 1900-1950' (PDF , 279kb): supervised by Sarah Brown (University of York) and Vivian Hamilton (Glasgow Museums).

We are looking to recruit highly promising students who will relish the unique opportunities these awards offer. The successful candidate will meet the AHRC’s criteria for eligibility, including residency criteria (the full award is generally only available to UK applicants) and be able to demonstrate the potential to develop advanced research skills. The award pays tuition fees and a maintenance grant each year (£14,090 in 2011-12) for a maximum of three years of full-time doctoral study, subject to evidence of satisfactory progress.

Further details about these awards and how to apply for them are detailed in the linked documents above. The deadline for applications is 5.00pm on 17 June 2011. The Postgraduate Administrator would welcome any enquiries regarding the application process.
