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.
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. For further information about examples of current UCLDH research projects, please visit www.ucl.ac.uk/dh/projects. The award provides funding for tuition fees at the UK/EU rate and a student stipend for three years. Informal enquiries may be made to Samantha Hulston (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr Claire Warwick begin_of_the_skype_highlightingend_of_the_skype_highlighting (email@example.com).
Applicants must have at least a good 2.1 in their first degree, and ideally an MA or MSc in a relevant discipline and should have a background in the humanities, computer science, information or museum studies or ideally a combination of some of these fields.
