PhD Study at Northumbria University funded by the Northern Bridge Consortium
The Music subject group at Northumbria University (Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK) invites applications for PhD studentships through the AHRC-funded Northern Bridge Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership.
Music research at Northumbria (https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/about-us/academic-departments/humanities/research/music-research/music-research-group/) encompasses the broad spectrum of music studies, with supervisory expertise in social, political and cultural histories of music; historical performance practice; critical editing; material cultures (print, manuscript, instruments); auditory cultures; musical mobilities; nineteenth-century opera; early music; pre-modern popular music-making; and music in myth and literature.
The Northern Bridge Consortium (http://www.northernbridge.ac.uk/) offers high-quality supervision and exceptional training resources. The normal duration of a doctoral award is 3.5 years full-time or 7 years part-time. Applicants also have access to additional funding streams, and the opportunity to undertake a placement of up to 6 months to support their training and professional development.
The Northern Bridge Open Studentship Competition for entry in October 2024 is now open. Prospective applicants wishing to be considered for a Northern Bridge-funded PhD in music at Northumbria should:
- read the Northern Bridge guidance notes, including AHRC eligibility criteria: http://www.northernbridge.ac.uk/applyforastudentship/theopenstudentshipcompetition/
- read Northumbria’s guidance notes on the standard application process: https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/research/postgraduate-research-degrees/studentships/nbc-dtp/
- take note of the short timeframe and deadlines for the application process.
Applications for the Open Studentship Competition are in two stages. First, prospective applicants should approach their prospective supervisors at Northumbria well ahead of the deadline for the submission of a PhD application form by 9 January 2024. (Applicants who wait until January before approaching potential supervisors are highly unlikely to be considered for nomination to the competition.) Applicants who are progressed from this first stage will then be invited to complete the Northern Bridge nomination form for entry into the second stage of the competition, with a deadline on 20 February 2024.
Please notice that, at Stage 1, all Northern Bridge applications at Northumbria are also automatically considered for the Research Development Fund Studentship Scheme, with further details to be announced in mid-November.
