This University of Brighton open call for AHRC-funded Techne studentships for October 2022 is accepting applications until 03 January 2022.
We are looking for motivated and engaged individuals to study across our research strengths in the arts and humanities. Applicants will be educated to masters level, or equivalent, and meet AHRC eligibility criteria for funding.
The studentships are for 'open call' projects for which applicants devise their own project proposal and identify a potential supervisor.
For details of the application process, including how to find a potential supervisor, see How to Apply below.
Your application will go through a two-stage process, being considered first by the University of Brighton Doctoral College.
AHRC-funded Techne studentships
Techne is a Doctoral Training Partnership funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to create a new model for collaborative research skills training for research students across nine higher education institutions in London and the South East (Royal Holloway; Brunel University; University of Brighton; Kingston University; Loughborough University, London; Roehampton University; University of Surrey; University of the Arts London; and University of Westminster). Techne’s vision is to produce scholars who are highly motivated and prepared for academic, public or professional life.
Fully-funded studentships (stipend and fee waiver) will be awarded by Techne to the best students put forward by its member universities. Successful applicants will benefit from a rich and diverse training programme with a focus on interdisciplinarity and developing career potential both in and beyond higher education; and will be able to draw on supervisory expertise from across the partnership. The Techne training programme is enhanced by input and placement opportunities provided by 13 partner organisations, including the Barbican, Natural History Museum, Museum of London, BFI and the Science Museum.
