We are delighted to announce that the call for proposals for AHRC-funded Collaborative Doctoral Awards to start in 2022 is now open.
The Collaborative Doctoral Partnership (CDP) programme provides funding for doctoral projects jointly proposed by a university-based academic in collaboration with a member of staff at the Science Museums and Archives Consortium (SMAC).
The Society, a member of SMAC, is keen to encourage proposals for PhD projects within the remit of AHRC that relate to the Society’s Collections, current strategy, opportunities afforded by the Wiley Digital Archives digitisation project, and engagement with new audiences.
To date the Society has hosted 14 PhD students carrying out collaborative research on our Collections, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, with two more starting this autumn.
This is a two stage process, with expressions of interest due by Friday 24 September. If you are an academic from a university with a potential project that draws on the Society's Collections, or have an interest in discussing opportunities, please contact Dr Sarah Evans as soon as possible.
