Profile Description

 Pamela Weston Clarinet Award for Doctoral Study

The Royal College of Music invites applications for the Pamela Weston Clarinet Award for Doctoral Study. Amongst the RCM's professorial staff are some of the world's leading clarinet players and scholars. In addition, the College's Library and Collections contain substantial holdings of manuscripts, programmes and other materials relating to the clarinet, such as the Graham Melville-Mason collection.

Applicants are welcome to undertake research into any aspect of the instrument or related members of the clarinet family. Submissions across theory and practice, i.e. combining text-based and practical research, are particularly welcome. Please contact Dr Ingrid Pearson, Research Fellow in Performance Practice, for informal advice prior to making an application ().

The studentship, funded by the late Pamela Weston, will pay tuition fees for a student from the UK or European Union for three years full-time or six years part-time study. If the studentship is held by an overseas student, the holder will be responsible for paying the balance between the home/EU fees and the overseas fees rate. It is expected that the successful candidate will take up the studentship in September 2016.

Applicants should follow the standard application procedure, but should clearly indicate on their proposal that they are applying for the Pamela Weston Clarinet Award (http://www.rcm.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/doctoral/). Closing date for applications is 31 January 2016.
