The University of the West of England are delighted to announce the availability of fully-funded Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded PhD studentships as part of the South, West & Wales 2 Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW2)*.

UWE Bristol invites applications to undertake doctoral research that focuses on any area of:

· Digital culture

· Film and media

· Design

· Heritage

· The creative economy.

As well as welcoming proposals relating to individual supervisors’ specialist expertise, we also encourage applications within these focus areas that relate to the research of one of the following four research centres:

Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR) Digital Cultures Research Centre (DCRC) Regional History Centre (DHC) and Bristol Centre for Linguistics (BCL)

Each research centre has a track record of supervising interdisciplinary research projects and, in particular, practice-led research.

*The South West and Wales 2 Doctoral Training Partnership is made up of ten institutions (Aberystwyth University, Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, Bath Spa University, University of Bristol, Cardiff University, Cranfield University, University of Exeter, University of Reading, University of Southampton, and UWE Bristol), and funded by those institutions and by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership offers opportunities to Arts and Humanities PhD students for cross-institutional supervision in both disciplinary and cross-disciplinary projects. Together with our multiple arts, heritage, cultural, and creative economy partners, the SWW DTP2 aims to develop researchers who will be equipped for a wide range of careers through the acquisition of research-based, employability, entrepreneurial, and interpersonal skills that are vital to the 21st-century knowledge economy.

The deadline for SWW2 applications is 27 January 2020.
