PhD studentship announcement

  • Deadline:
    July 8, 2004, 8:14 a.m.

The Art and Design Research Centre (ADRC) at Sheffield Hallam University is
offering a university-funded PhD studentship in Fine Art, Design or Media
Production. The studentship will provide fees, a maintenance allowance in
line with UK Research Council norms and some support with practical research

We invite enquiries from people who have achieved a high standard in their
previous studies, who have identified a challenging research problem in an
area of which they have a broad understanding. This may have arisen from
earlier postgraduate studies or from professional experience.

Sheffield Hallam University is one of the UK's leading research centres for
Art, Design and Media Production, achieving a 5 rating in the most recent UK
Research Assessment Exercise. We were also the first UK University to
introduce a full-time Research Methods training programme in Art and Design
leading to a Masters Qualification.

Our research includes a significant amount of collaborative work with other
disciplines, notably in healthcare materials science and in computer
science. To develop this inter-disciplinary theme the university has formed
a Culture, Communication & Computing Research Institute in which ADRC is the
largest element.

We encourage research in which creative practice plays a significant part in
investigations and we have taken a lead in developing and disseminating
effective methods for investigative creative practice.

If you would like to explore this opportunity, please send me a CV and brief
outline of your research interests.
