Our intellectual environment fosters the problem-driven and interdisciplinary research vital to addressing the new challenges of a world shaped by the speed of technological innovation and global change. Understanding and promoting the value of human culture and creativity in addressing such challenges is central to the CHASE vision of postgraduate research and professional development. Across CHASE, more than 1,000 academics in the arts and humanities, many of whom are also leading practitioners (artists, curators, novelists, poets, musicians, lawyers), offer a broad and diverse range of supervision.

We support discipline-based projects, but also specialise in interdisciplinary research and creative practice. Our research and training environment encourages our doctoral students to develop interdisciplinary methodologies in emerging fields of study and to explore how to integrate their research with developments in digital cultures. In addition, our network of partnerships with leading arts and humanities organisations and creative industries offers opportunities including funded research placements.

Successful applicants will have their fees paid, as well as receiving a stipend to cover living expenses (where eligible). Awards may be full or part time, and additional funds are available for skills development and to support research expenses.

Opportunities are offered for research across all areas of the arts and humanities. For full details and how to apply visit
