PhD opportunities

At The National Archives we work in collaboration with universities to supervise PhDs, strengthening partnerships between higher education and the cultural heritage sector.

As new PhD opportunities become available, they will be advertised below:

Midlands Graduate School ESRC DTP Collaborative Studentship

In collaboration with the University of Leicester and the University of Nottingham, The National Archives is offering a doctoral studentship on 'Poverty, Work and Punishment: Vagrancy Across the Midlands, 1834 to 1930', funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).

Applications are now open for students to apply to the Midlands Graduate School Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) before 20 February 2018. Find out more and apply.

AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships

For Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships (CDPs), we usually call for expressions of interest from academics in the summer and advertise to students in the spring.
