The Open University, In Collaboraton With The British Library, The National Library Of Scotland And The National Library Of Wales
As part of an exciting partnership between The Open University, The British Library, The National Library of Scotland and The National Library of Wales, we are able to offer a 3-year, full-time AHRC-funded studentship in History (to commence October 2013). Proposals will be considered for any project seeking to utilise the collections of one or more of the national library partners, but we are particularly interested in receiving proposals relating to crowdsourced historical data.
The successful candidate will join a community of doctoral students at The Open University, but will be based primarily in one of the national libraries (all of whom have existing sets of crowdsourced data) and will have access to advice and collections from all 3 partners.

Closing date: 31 May 2013.
Interviews anticipated: w/c 24 June 2013.
Equal Opportunity is University Policy.
