Oxford University Museums AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnership is delighted to announce a fully-funded studentship to commence on 1 October 2016, through a partnership between the University of Warwick, the Ashmolean Museum and the Oxford Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art. The studentship includes a full AHRC grant (fees and subsistence) and an additional contribution of up to £2,000 per year to cover the costs of undertaking research in Oxford.
