PhD Studentship: Researching the British Film Institute (BFI) Archive

Becoming a research student at Nottingham will allow you to be part of a friendly and supportive research community of staff and students and to work closely with international experts.  All research students have access to excellent facilities, with an ICT and Learning Resource Centre, workstations for full-time students, and a dedicated drop-in working area for part-time students.  We aim to create a dynamic research environment for all students and look forward to their contribution to the vibrant research culture in the School. The School of Education at Nottingham is a leading centre for research in education, with a broad commitment to improving and investigating social justice in diverse education sectors.  With an international reputation for quality and excellence, we offer first-class supervision and doctoral research training. 

This studentship is offered by the School of Education in conjunction with the BFI (http://www.bfi.org.uk). The aim of the studentship is to support research into films and broadcasting made for schools in Britain during the period after the Second World War. The successful student will be supervised within the School of Education at Nottingham and will have access to the BFI National Archive and the support of BFI archivists. This studentship is offered in recognition of the new partnership between the BFI and the HE sector, which is being led by The University of Nottingham. As well as producing an original independent study in an under-researched area, the student will be expected to contribute to the development of the cross-disciplinary partnership between the University and the BFI, with a particular focus on the educational dimensions. Students should have an interest in the educational use of films, but may come from an education or an arts/media background.

For further details please contact Professor Christine Hall, Email: Christine.Hall@Nottingham.ac.uk.

This is a full-time studentship and funding will start on 1 October 2010.   It is one of two studentship awards currently offered by the School of Education.   One will be funded by an ESRC studentship award and the other by a School of Education award.  The allocation of the awards will be at the School’s discretion and applicants should not indicate a preference.  Both awards cover full PhD fees at the UK/EU rate and provide a monthly stipend (£13,290 per annum in 2009) to eligible applicants.  The stipend is tax free and is therefore equivalent to a gross salary of approximately £17,000 per annum.
