The DTH at The University of Nottingham invites applications for one half-funded PhD Scholarship to provide support in the Hub.

Our work

The DTH supports research and teaching with digital technologies across the Faculty of Arts. We work with a team of student volunteers to:

  • Create and run digital projects
  • Provide equipment loans and advice to students and staff.

Key areas of focus for us are:

  • Archives
  • Heritage
  • Digitisation of a variety of formats (from documents to artworks, oral histories to archaeological finds)
  • Multimedia projects such as filming and editing video
  • 3D digitisation and virtual reality.

You can find out more about the projects we’re involved in and our work with student volunteers on our blog.

Research associate responsibilities

Duties and responsibilities of the successful candidates will be to:

  • Provide an efficient reception and enquiry service, assisting users in the Centre.
  • Maintain the equipment and manage the equipment loans service.
  • Provide support for the DTH Manager and cover in his absence.
  • Administer and support the student volunteer scheme.
  • Ensure the security of the Centre and its equipment.
  • Help to promote and market the DTH, including at events such as University Open Days.

Eligibility

The Scholarship is available to PhD students studying in any school within the Faculty of Arts: English; Cultures, Languages, and Area Studies (American and Canadian Studies; Cultural, Media and Visual Studies; Modern Languages and Cultures); and Humanities (Classics and Archaeology; History; Music; Philosophy; Theology and Religious Studies).

The award is not available for students who have received funding elsewhere, such as through Midlands4Cities.

If you are not already a PhD student at Nottingham you must have a conditional or unconditional offer and be intending to start your PhD by 3 October 2022.

Current UoN PhD students in Arts are also encouraged to apply but should note that the award will be shortened to their existing term of study.

Award value

The award covers half of a UK full-time postgraduate research tuition fee per year, for up to three years, subject to satisfactory progression.

Start date

  • 3 October 2022

Hours of work

  • 240 over one year for a full-time student.
  • A flexible approach to working hours is essential to accommodate peak times.

What we are looking for

We are looking for someone who has excellent organisational and PC skills, and is a good team player as well as having the ability to offer one-to-one support. Our ideal candidate is interested and enthusiastic about digital technologies in the arts and humanities, with a willingness to learn and experiment and to share their learning with others. Some experience with digital capture equipment and editing software would be advantageous, but is not essential as the DTH team will provide training, support and access to learning materials.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to the DTH Manager Matt Davies at Matt.Davies@nottingham.ac.uk

The closing date for scholarship applications is 29th July 2022.
