Applications are invited for an AHRC collaborative PhD studentship, held at the Music Department of Royal Holloway, University of London, and The Foundling Museum, London, on the theme 'Concerts, commerce and charity in 18th-century London'. The studentship, funded by the technē AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, commences in autumn 2019.
The project will focus on materials in the Gerald Coke Handel Collection, an internationally important collection of manuscripts and printed material documenting London concert and theatre life in the 18th century. It will be co-supervised by Stephen Rose (Music Department, Royal Holloway) and Katharine Hogg (Librarian, Gerald Coke Handel Collection at the Foundling Museum).

The residency requirements for this studentship can be found in Annex 1 of the Research Council Training Grant Guide.
Candidates must have an undergraduate degree in Music or a related subject (minimum 2.i) and should hold a Masters qualification by the start of the studentship in September 2019 or have equivalent professional experience.
