WHO: applicants with a strong academic background (2.1 or higher, MA preferred) with a clear and compelling proposal. A number of these studentships require residency in Cornwall. Multi- and trans-disciplinary proposals are particularly welcome.
WHAT: Research at University College Falmouth is about ideas: generating them, applying them, sharing them. Emphasis is on practice-led and user-led inquiry that is collaborative in nature and multidisciplinary in scope. Applications for 16 new studentships for doctoral study are now invited, starting in October 2009, in areas that match a range of supervisory expertise in Art, Media, Design and Performance and that will contribute to the advancement of Cornwall’s knowledge economy. In particular, and to coincide with the Design Council’s Designs of the Time initiative in Cornwall, proposals are welcomed in aspects of user-centred design.
PAYMENTS: the three-year, full-time studentships cover all fees and include an annual maintenance grant of £13,200. The successful applicants will be expected to deliver up to 90 hours of undergraduate teaching or curriculum support per year. Awards are payable in instalments on enrolment and continuation is subject to satisfactory annual progression.
