The Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI), a world-leading centre of media and communication research is part of the AHRC-funded technē Doctoral Training Partnership and offers each year a number of three-year PhD scholarships. This is an excellent opportunity to join one of the UK's leading research groups in media and communication and to be part of a wider collaboration in the arts and humanities. CAMRI is a thriving community of researchers, with doctoral students from around the world researching in media, communications and cultural studies. We provide a platform for diverse, challenging research aimed at making a mark in the scholarly community
As well as financial support, technē offers a developmental framework for doctoral researchers across the collaborating institutions, with research training, supportive community networks, professional and public engagement opportunities and a space for both independent and collaborative scholarship.
Studentships include maintenance and fees for three years for a full time student; or six years for a part-time student.
Normally to be eligible for a full award a student must have no restrictions on how long they can stay in the UK and have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the studentship.
EU students are eligible for a full award if they have been ordinarily resident in the UK throughout the three-year period preceding the start of the studentship (including for full time education). Residential eligibility is based on a physical presence in the UK. To be eligible for a fees-only award, a student must be ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU. For further information on eligibility, please consult:
Studentships are open to students who have already started their doctoral study but they must have at least 50% of the funded period of an AHRC award (usually 18 months) remaining at the time they start their scholarship.
Recruitment deadlines are in January each year, the scholarship to begin the following September. So the next deadline will be in January 2021, to begin in September.
