Expressions of Interest are invited for Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) - funded scholarships for the 3D3 Centre for Doctoral Training.
Funded by the AHRC, 3D3 trains researchers to meet the creative and design opportunities of the future, exploring the possibilities and challenges presented by rapidly evolving technologies, including the interface between digital processes and traditional methods.
The 3D3 Centre for Doctoral Training is a partnership between Falmouth University, Plymouth University and the University of Western England, Bristol (UWE). Its aim is to train a new generation of interdisciplinary practitioner-researchers. These three universities, all located in South West England, are committed to fostering innovation through practice-led research in the creative and performing arts, especially the interrelated fields of digital design, digital media and digital arts (including music and performance).
3D3 doctoral students are based in one of the three partnership universities with a dedicated supervisory team but work collaboratively across all three institutions following a bespoke research training and career development programme. It offers a unique opportunity where students benefit from the combined expertise of staff in all three institutions, many of whom are world-leading experts in their field. They are situated in an extensive network of local, national and international partnerships that have been forged by each university, enabling interactions across a range of creative communities and facilitating numerous possibilities for work placements and internships.

Expressions of Interest (EoI)
Deadline: 10pm, 15 January 2016
If you are considering applying for a 3D3 doctoral studentship, we strongly encourage you to submit an EoI. The purpose of the EoI process is to: ensure that your proposed research is appropriate for the consortium and, if so, in which institution and research unit; ensure that you are appropriately qualified to undertake this research with a reasonable chance of being funded; offer some support and feedback to those applicants who are invited to submit full applications.
While you may apply for a 3D3 studentship without submitting an EoI, the consortium is unable to offer you advice or guidance on your application if you do not. Students who submitted an EoI last year, and who were encouraged to take their application forward as a result, had a far greater chance of success in the studentship competition. We are also unable to consider any EoIs that arrive after the deadline of 15 January 2016.
Deadline for full studentship applications: 7 March 2016
3D3 PhD studentships are only open to UK and EU applicants who propose to undertake practice-led research in digital art, media, design and/or performance in (or across) named research units at Falmouth University, Plymouth University or UWE Bristol.
