University of the West of England, Bristol

The 3D3 Centre for Doctoral Training is a partnership between UWE Bristol, Plymouth University and Falmouth University, creating a new generation of practice-led researchers in digital design, digital media and digital art.  We have been awarded 12 fully-funded PhD studentships from the National Productivity Investment Fund to begin on 1 October 2017. The studentships cover fees plus an annual maintenance award of £14,553. The award is for three years full-time or five years part-time.

You will be guided and supported by academic staff based in one of the three universities’ research centres and enjoy the benefits of an industrial partner that guarantees training and access to facilities, a variety of internships/placements and in some instances co-supervision. You will be based at one of the partner universities but will benefit from the combined resources of all three universities and a bespoke training programme. All students will also be part of an interdisciplinary Design Futures Lab.  

This is a unique and exciting opportunity to become part of an innovative and cutting-edge cohort of researchers dedicated to reshaping industrial technologies and processes through embedded practice-based research.

The deadline for applications is 19 June 2017. Interviews will be held in Bristol on either 10 or 11 July 2017.
