Birmingham City University: Vice Chancellor’s Inaugural PhD Studentship Scheme (UK)

Text of the call on a coloured background.

Birmingham City University (BCU) in the UK is launching the first phase of its Vice Chancellor’s Inaugural PhD Studentship scheme, which is offering 23 fully funded doctoral studentships.

The scheme focuses on addressing key research priorities, unleashing potential from postgraduate researchers to contribute to the research impacts of BCU. Projects and areas of research include (among others):

  • Reimagining Music Education: using improvisation to explore new paradigms for learning and teaching
  • Forming Futures: exploring historic and contemporary forms of state science fiction and anticipation through creative practice
  • InSTORE: exploring aspects of the political, social and aesthetic dimensions of retail space by making new artwork with communities
  • Media Diversity in the UK: Persistent Inequalities and Emerging Agendas
  • Musical Pathways: An Investigation into the Musical Journeys of Children with a Disability

The opportunity is open to national and international students and some of the projects have an emphasis on practice-based research. Applications are therefore welcome from those wishing to develop their creative practice in the context of a doctoral research project.

The successful applicant will be financially supported through a fee waiver and a tax-free stipend payable the same rate as UK Research Council funded studentships (19,237 GBP a year for 2024/25) for up to 42 months full time.
