Open Oxford Cambridge AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award Studentship

The Open University in partnership with The National Trust

Project: Lives of Medieval Books in the National Trust Libraries

Interview date: Early February 2024

The Open University is pleased to offer Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funding through the Open-Oxford-Cambridge (OOC) Collaborative Doctoral Award (CDA) in partnership with The National Trust. Collaborative Doctoral Awards offer an opportunity for students to gain professional experience outside the university environment and to develop and enhance their skill set.

The Open University is internationally recognised for innovative research across the Arts and Humanities. We host a number of major AHRC- and ESRC-funded research projects.  We have a strong commitment to cross-disciplinary work, to national and international public engagement, and to creative partnerships with a range of non-university partners.

Project Overview

Please visit Lives of Medieval Books in the National Trust Libraries | Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership (oocdtp.ac.uk) for project details and supervision team.

Eligibility

We invite applications from candidates from all backgrounds and ethnicities. Applicants will ideally have a good relevant first degree in the humanities and a masters’ degree in a historical subject (or will have completed their masters’ degree by the start of the project) or demonstrate equivalent professional experience which might include library experience with manuscript or rare book collections. Your application should i) respond to the project, by discussing how you understand the proposal and what your particular interests might be in developing it; ii) indicate how your experience of study and any other relevant experience informs your response to the research project; iii) outline what you identify as the opportunities for your career development. Applicants should meet the eligibility criteria for Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC studentships.

Value of award

Successful doctoral students are eligible for a full award, which includes both a stipend to support living costs and coverage of tuition fees.

Funding is adjusted on a pro-rata basis for part-time students and where the award is for a period of less than 12 months in any year.

Those in receipt of studentships will be eligible for the same benefits as other UKRI-funded students, including additional support for research expenses and individual skills training, funded sick leave (up to 13 weeks in any 12-month period), funded maternity leave, and Disability Support Allowance (DSA).
