The Art and Design Research Centre (ADRC) at Sheffield Hallam 
University is offering a university-funded PhD studentship in Fine 
Art, Design or Media Production. The studentship will provide fees, a 
maintenance allowance
in line with UK Research Council norms and some support with 
practical research costs.

We invite enquiries from people who have achieved a high standard in 
their previous studies, who have identified a challenging research 
problem in an area of which they have a broad understanding. This may 
have arisen from earlier postgraduate studies or from professional 

Sheffield Hallam University is one of the UK's leading research 
centres for Art, Design and Media Production, achieving a 5 rating in 
the most recent UK Research Assessment Exercise. We were also the 
first UK University to
introduce a full-time Research Methods training programme in Art and 
Design leading to a Masters Qualification.

Our research includes a significant amount of collaborative work with 
other disciplines, notably in healthcare materials science and in 
computer science. To develop this inter-disciplinary theme the 
university has formed a Culture, Communication & Computing Research 
Institute in which ADRC is the largest element.

We encourage research in which creative practice plays a significant 
part in investigations and we have taken a lead in developing and 
disseminating effective methods for investigative creative practice.

If you would like to explore this opportunity, please send me a CV 
and brief outline of your research interests.
