PhD studentship at UCL Information Studies

By Claire L H Warwick, on 21 October 2010

Regular readers will know how much we love PhD students here at UCLDH. We can’t get enough of them, almost literally. This time the studentship on offer is for the whole of the department in which UCLDH sits, that’s the iSchool for the benefit of our North American readers. So obviously this is going to be highly competitive, as it will include applicants from other disciplines. But we’d still be very keen to hear from DH applicants. The open evening is also an opportunity to find out more about DIS, though sadly I can’t be there as I’ll be in Paris at a meeting (honest!). But do please get in touch with informal enquiries, if you’d like to.

UCL Department of Information Studies is a leading centre for research in librarianship, information science, archives and records management, publishing and digital humanities, in one of the world’s top universities. If you are considering doctoral study in any of these areas, we would like to talk to you! We are currently recruiting students to join our doctoral cohort from September 2011. We have a doctoral scholarship from the Arts and Humanities Research Council for which we are also inviting applications.

We are holding an open evening on Thursday 25 November 2010 from 5-8pm and we would like to invite you to join us to hear more about doctoral study in DIS and for you to find out about us and ask questions. So that we can order sufficient refreshments, please let us know if you plan to come on 25 November by email to : infostudies-enquiries@ucl.ac.uk.

If you want further information about making an application for doctoral study, please see our research student page.

PhD in Digital Humanities

By Claire S Ross, on 7 April 2010

Fancy doing a PhD in Digital Humanities? Then come join us over at UCLDH!

The PhD studentship in Digital Humanities will be held at the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities which brings together work being done in many different UCL departments and centres, in the humanities, computer science and engineering, as well as Library Services and Museums and Collections. We also collaborate with organisations outside UCL, such as museums, galleries, libraries and archives. We aim to produce research that is meaningful to both computer scientists and humanities scholars, and that will bring about new knowledge in both research areas.

Studentship Description

The award may be held by a student working on any topic relevant to digital humanities. However, it should involve genuinely interdisciplinary research, which is likely to require joint supervision from more than one UCL department or faculty.  The award provides funding for tuition fees at the UK/EU rate and a student stipend for three years.Find further information about our current UCLDH research projects.

Informal enquiries may be made to Samantha Hulston (s.hulston@ucl.ac.uk) or Dr Claire Warwick (c.warwick@ucl.ac.uk).
