AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award
Applications are invited for an AHRC CDA studentship commencing autumn 2013 on
The Legacies of the Repatriation of Human Remains
Supervised by Dr Samuel Alberti, Director of Museums and Archives at the Royal College of Surgeons, Dr Beth Greenhough, Geography, QMUL, and Professor Catherine Nash, Geography, QMUL.
This three-year doctoral studentship aims to understand the processes and legacies of the repatriation of human remains for museums and claimaint communities. Working closely with the Hunterian Museum and combining archival work, ethnographic observation and in-depth interviews, the project will contribute to museum policy, public debate and academic scholarship concerned with the extraction, use, meaning and global circulation of human remains.
The award pays fees and an annual maintenance grant (currently £15,726 per year), with the Royal College of Surgeons contributing £1000 to the student’s research expenses. The usual AHRC eligibility rules apply to these studentships, including having an appropriate masters degree by October 2013 and AHRC’s residential requirements.
The closing date is 28th June 2013. Interviews will be held on Tuesday 16th July 2013. Click here for further details on the project and how to apply [DOC 351KB]. Informal inquiries should be made to Dr Samuel Alberti (firstname.lastname@example.org) or to Prof. Catherine Nash (email@example.com).
