We are advertising 6 fully funded PhDs in our University (fees + living expenses). Stipend should be at least the RCUK rate (£14,057 – uk pounds – per year) or more, and tuition fees will be paid.
There are a number of possible areas of supervision, but I would be particularly interested to supervise students interested in archaeoacoustics and music archaeology.
All subjects may involve creative work or practice based research. Final submissions could range from a portfolio of original creations to a written thesis, or a combination of the two. There would be the opportunity to be involved in European Music Archaeology Project (http://www.emaproject.eu) activities.
Current activities in this area in our department include recordings of ancient instruments (bone flutes, carnyx, aulos etc.); digital modelling of archaeological environments; and acoustic modelling, analysis and testing of archaeological sites.
Please feel free to email me if you want to discuss details of applications. Please mention my name in your application. Please circulate this and post it to any sites or individuals you think may be interested.
The application deadline is 10 September 2015.
