AHRC funding available for PhDs in theatre, film, TV and interactive media.

Posted on 16 October 2013

The department invites applications for AHRC-funded doctoral studentships, to start in on our PhD programme from October 2014.

Academic staff in the department have research and creative practice interests in theatre, film, television and interactive media – and we especially encourage applications that build on our existing strengths. The deadline for applications is early February 2014, and successful applicants will be notified by the end of April 2014.

The department is a member of the White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities (WRoCAH), which is is a Doctoral Training Partnership of the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York. WRoCAH is responsible for the distribution of AHRC-funded studentships and for the coordination of the doctoral training programme; and from 2014 will be offering over 50 AHRC studentships per year to candidates with a place for doctoral study at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield or York.

Applicants for an AHRC studentship must have applied for a place and may only apply for funding at one of Leeds, Sheffield or York. The studentship application form and details of how to apply are only available from the WRoCAH website
