Open Oxford Cambridge AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award Studentship
The Open University in partnership with Transport for all.
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 Transport for all. 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.
Please visit Making urban public places more accessible through design: video ethnographic research for project details and supervision team.
We invite applications from candidates from all backgrounds and ethnicities. We particularly welcome applicants with lived experience of disability or chronic illness. Applicants will ideally have a First-Class undergraduate degree and a Masters degree (or equivalent) in an area related to the project (e.g. design, architecture, geography, anthropology, disabilities studies). Practical experience of the design of the built environment and the collection of video data would be desirable. 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).
