Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI) Research Studentships in the Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design at the University of Westminster

Three years, full time

£16,000 annual stipend plus fee waiver

A number of full-time University of Westminster Studentships are available to candidates with either Home or Overseas fee status in any area of Media and Communication starting in September 2018.

CAMRI  (the Communication and Media Research Institute) is one of the leading research groups in media and communication, its work rated by the UK Government’s 2014 Research Excellence Framework, as 52% 4* (world leading), and 35% 3* (internationally excellent). We have over 20 research active staff and 50 PhD students. We have a wide and expanding range of research interests, centered on three main research groups in social media, media policy and industries and media history. We have established centres for the study of the media in China, India, the Arab world and Africa. In the broadest sense we are interested in the social, economic, political and cultural significance of the media, and welcome proposals from prospective students on these or any other topic related to media and communication.

Eligible candidates will hold at least an upper second class honours degree and a Master’s degree. Candidates whose secondary level education has not been conducted in the medium of English should also demonstrate evidence of appropriate English language proficiency, normally defined as 6.5 in IELTS (with not less than 6.0 in any of the individual elements).

The Studentship consists of a fee waiver and a stipend of £16,000 per annum. Successful candidates will be expected to undertake some teaching duties.

Prospective candidates wishing to informally discuss an application should contact Dr Anthony McNicholas, mcnichc@westminster.ac.uk and/or Dr Alessandro D’Arma, A.Darma@westminster.ac.uk

 

The closing date for applications is 5pm Friday 16 February 2018
