New PhD studentships at DCRC! – Starting in October 2017

12 National Productivity Investment Fund PhD studentships – Starting in October 2017

The 3D3 Centre for Doctoral Training – a partnership between UWE Bristol, Plymouth and Falmouth Universities – has been awarded 12 fully-funded PhD studentships from the National Productivity Investment Fund to begin on 1 October 2017. The studentships cover fees plus an annual maintenance award of £14,553. The award is for 3 years full-time, but it is possible to study part-time.

Each studentship is a collaboration between one of the three universities’ research centres and an industrial partner that guarantees training and access to facilities, a variety of internships/placements and in some instances co-supervision. All students will be part of an interdisciplinary Design Futures Lab cohort.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to become part of an innovative and cutting-edge cohort of researchers dedicated to reshaping industrial technologies and processes through embedded practice-based research. The following projects are with the Digital Cultures Research Centre:

Encounters with virtual humans

Experience design for sensory storytelling

Future of the book

Attention and engagement in digital media production

Authoring augmented public space

The deadline for applications is 19 June and interviews will be held in Bristol on 10/11 July.
