For the last decade, supported by the AHRC, the Society has hosted PhD students working collaboratively on the Collections. Currently, this is supported through the Science Museums and Archives Consortium (along with the Science Museum Group Museums, BT Archives, and the Royal Society). All projects involve a collaboration between a university-based researcher and the staff and (archive) materials at one of the CDP consortium institutions.
If you are an academic from a university with a potential project, or have an interest in discussing opportunities, please contact Dr Catherine Souch.
Call for proposals
The 2018 Open Call for proposals for AHRC-funded Collaborative Doctoral Awards to be supported through the Science Museums and Archives Consortium Collaborative Doctoral Partnership is now open. The deadline for the first round of proposals is 21 September 2018. This programme provides funding for doctoral projects. Any studentship must be jointly proposed by a university-based academic in collaboration with a member of staff at the Science Museums and Archives Consortium (SMAC). We are particularly interested in projects with a digital element and/or that engage community groups.
