AHRC Funded Studentship For 2013 Cultural policy in Glasgow, 1970-1989

A Collaborative Doctoral Award with Glasgow Life

The University of Glasgow is in the top 1% of the world’s universities.


One fully-funded PhD studentship available from 1 October 2013.


Glasgow Life and the School of Culture and Creative Arts at the University of Glasgow are seeking to award one fully-funded PhD studentship to commence 1 October 2013.  The studentship, which will support three years of full-time study, is funded through the AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Programme’s award to Glasgow Life. The student will undertake research into Cultural policy in Glasgow, 1970-1989.  Through the partnership with Glasgow Life, the student will have an opportunity to acquire a range of creative industry skills and knowledge whilst pursuing critically-informed research into a period of cultural policy-making in a city where that work was hugely influential.  Working directly with Glasgow Life, and supported by its Director of Policy and Research, Dr Mark O’Neill, the student’s research will help establish a new critical history of cultural policy in Scotland.

Applicants should have at least a 2.1 honours degree in a relevant subject and have completed or be about to complete an appropriate Masters level qualification or be able to demonstrate equivalent preparedness for doctoral-level research through, for example, relevant professional experience.  The successful applicant will need to have an enthusiasm for the subject area, show the potential to develop a range of advanced research skills and demonstrate the ability to work effectively in academic and non-academic environments.
