How to apply
The deadline for applications for studentships to start in October 2017 will be 5pm on Friday 25 November 2016.
The British Museum has up to six fully funded AHRC Collaborative Doctoral studentships to allocate each year.
Proposals for new studentships are made jointly by a member of Museum staff and a member of academic staff at a UK University. The deadline for proposals is usually November for studentships to start in October of the following year. The scheme does not allow for applications directly from potential students.
The Museum welcomes proposals to examine, or use as a starting point, any of the objects or art works in our collection from any disciplinary perspective.
Applications are assessed by a panel with members drawn from universities and other cultural heritage organisations as well as the British Museum. The successful studentships selected on their academic strengths and clear support for the Museum’s objectives.
The studentships are then advertised in the spring by the University partner to recruit the right student.
Application forms need to be returned to Andrew Meek by the deadline, via email: email@example.com
If you are interested in discussing an idea for a proposal, or to explore what ideas we may have please contact the research student coordinator, Andrew Meek (firstname.lastname@example.org), or a relevant curator, scientist or other member of Museum staff to discuss ideas.
Further information about Collaborative Doctoral Partnership studentships is available on the Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships website.
