PhD Studentships in Music at Newcastle University (deadline 11 JANUARY 2017)
Newcastle University's International Centre for Music Studies (http://www.ncl.ac.uk/sacs/music/) welcomes applications for PhD studentships through the AHRC-funded Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership in: Historical Musicology; Critical Musicology; Popular Music Studies; Folk and Traditional Musics; Ethnomusicology; Early Music; Music Analysis; Composition and Creative Practice (notated composition; studio-based work; improvisation; mixed-media; sound art); and Performance.
The Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership offers high-quality supervision and exceptional resources, as well as the expertise of a broad portfolio of Strategic Partners for the training and development of outstanding Arts and Humanities postgraduate researchers.
*New this year*
New this year are the Northern Bridge Partnership Awards, which give PhD researchers the opportunity to develop and pursue their project in collaboration with one of Northern Bridge's Strategic Partners. See http://www.northernbridge.ac.uk/studentships/apply/
The AHRC awards cover tuition fees and provide a maintenance grant at the RCUK national rate for UK applicants. The AHRC award covers tuition fees only for EU students; however, Newcastle University will make maintenance awards to EU students that are equivalent to those of the AHRC.
We welcome applications from outstanding candidates who can demonstrate evidence of academic excellence at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, as well as evidence of sufficient research skills to undertake the project.
If you wish to be considered for Northern Bridge AHRC funding for a PhD in Music, you must have made an online application for a PhD place at Newcastle University by 5pm on Monday 11th January 2017 indicating your interest in Northern Bridge funding by inserting the 'AHR17' code in your application.
