WHAT: collaborative PhD Studentship with the University of Huddersfield and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The School of Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Huddersfield is delighted to announce a full time PhD studentship for doctoral research in association with the Yorkshire Sculpture Park commencing January 2011. As a research student you will be expected to be working 'in residence' at the University of Huddersfield (please see http://www.hud.ac.uk/ada/) and locate your research at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (please see: http://www.ysp.co.uk/view.aspx?id=369). Recipients of the award are also expected to contribute to teaching and/or research support activities (up to six hours per week). You will be registered at the School of Art, Design and Architecture under the Director of Studies Dr Robert Clarke.

In the application you should include a statement highlighting your intended research project, and how you see it addressing the archive. We are interested in both practice and theoretical led research projects. The assets of the archive exist as a major research facility and resource. It was established in 1985 to provide a documentary trace of the development of arts education in the UK and worldwide, by collecting children's and students' work and the papers, letters and work of key educators and artists such as Victor Pasmore, Harry Thubron, Richard Hamilton (please see http://www.vads.ac.uk/collections/BDC.html) within the visual arts, and in music and language.
