Leverhulme Application Guidance Notes for entry October 2016

Up to 7 fully-funded three-year PhD studentships are currently available in the Durham Leverhulme Interdisciplinary Training Programme in Visual Culture (DLITP VC) for October 2016. We welcome applications from graduates in the arts and humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and life sciences who wish to pursue a PhD in visual science or visual culture. It is expected that candidates will have a strong first degree in a relevant discipline (2.1 minimum), together with an excellent Master’s qualification also in a relevant field.

Applicants for whom visual culture (generously defined) is integral to their research may apply to any of the University’s academic departments. Students will make an application to an academic department. The academic department will consider the application for the Durham Leverhulme Interdisciplinary Training Programme in Visual Culture, AND a PhD in that academic department. In the event that you are not successful for funding, you may still be offered a PhD in your main academic department (please note that participation in the Visual Culture Doctoral Training Programme is dependent on also being successful in being awarded Leverhulme funding). Applicants are encouraged to discuss their applications with potential supervisors if they wish. The full supervisory team will however only be finalised after an offer has been made. Successful applicants will participate in the scheme’s activities, such as the summer school in July each year, which they will help to design and organize.

There is a two-stage application process for the Programme:

  1. Two formal applications to both the University (online) and to the Programme (supplementary form to complete).
  2. Selection day for shortlisted candidates, which will be held in Durham in June 2016. Travel expenses (within the UK).

STAGE 1: Formal applications
