UNIVERSITY OF YORK
DEADLINE: 19 MAY 2009
The Department of Music at The University of York (UK), together with Music Preserved, is offering a fully-funded collaborative PhD studentship, commencing 1 October 2009.
The project aims to encourage and generate research into historical sound recordings of public performances in parallel with the study of music performance.
We seek a student researcher who is interested in exploring a specific aspect of the collections, allowing the archives to be interrogated from musicological vantage points that will produce research outputs that are of service both to the research community and to the general public.
Applicants must be UK residents (full studentship) or EU nationals (fees only). They should have research interests in musicology and/or 20th-century performance studies and some training in digitizing and/or cataloguing music sound recordings. They should normally have, or shortly expect to gain, a Masters degree in a relevant discipline, for example musicology, ethnomusicology, librarianship, etc. or the equivalent. In the 2009-10 academic year, full-time awards will provide a maintenance grant payment of £13,290, plus payment of standard tuition fees. The studentship is available to support three years' full-time work, subject to satisfactory progress, and can be taken on either a full-time or a part-time basis.
This project will be supervised by Dr Jenny Doctor, Senior Lecturer in Music at the University of York. Please direct enquiries to her (jd535 at york.ac.uk
