Science Museum PhD studentship

Posted on 5 March 2016

University teams up with the Science Museum to offer AHRC-funded history studentship

Applications are being invited for an exciting new AHRC-funded collaborative doctoral award. The University of York is collaborating with the Science Museum in London to offer a 3-year fully-funded PhD studentship on the topic of ‘Instruments and their makers: A study of experiment, collaboration and identity in seventeenth-century London’.

The studentship will be funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and will be jointly supervised by Dr Sophie Weeks (Department of History, University of York) and Jane Desborough (Science Museum).

This project will give the successful candidate the chance to pursue doctoral research in history, while gaining first-hand experience of work within a museum setting. The project will also help to build the relationship between the two sectors. The closing date for applications is 15 April 2016.
