PhD scholarship on ‘Production and Reading of Music Sources, 1480-1530’ at Bangor University

Bangor University: College of Arts, Education and Humanities Fully-funded three-year PhD studentship
The Production and Reading of Polyphonic Music Sources, 1480-1530 (PRoMS)

Applications are invited for a fully-funded research studentship (fees and stipend at AHRC level, currently at GBP 13,590), as part of this major research project funded by the AHRC. The studentship will begin on 1 December 2010 or as soon as possible thereafter. The topic of the PhD will be, broadly conceived, ‘Music, Words and Image in Printed Sources of Polyphony, 1500-1530’. The student will work as part of an interdisciplinary research team, led by Professor Thomas Schmidt-Beste. The research project is based in Bangor but involves a partnership with the Warburg Institute (University of London), the Digital Image Archive of Medieval Music (DIAMM), and the Centre for Computing in the Humanities (King’s College, London).

We are looking for a musicologist, but one with interdisciplinary interests in art history, codicology, and the history of the book. Candidates should have completed appropriate research training or have equivalent research experience.
