UWE: 3D3 Centre for Doctoral Training: Awards Funding PhD Studentships

The 3D3 Centre for Doctoral Training – a partnership between UWE Bristol, Plymouth and Falmouth – has 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 3.5 years full-time but it is possible to study part-time. 

Each studentship is a collaboration between one of the three universities’ research centres and an industrial partner that guarantees training and access to facilities, a variety of internships/placements and in some instances co-supervision. All students will 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 following projects are with the Centre for Fine Print Research – please do contact us before applying:

Revitalising a Victorian Underglaze Print Archive
