Call for studentship project proposals from University academics with MOLA 2020/2021

Call for studentship project proposals from University academics with MOLA, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council

Deadline: 16 September 2019

From October 2020 MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology) will be supporting three new research students a year to study for a Collaborative Doctoral Partnership (CDP) PhD at a UK university, co-supervised by a member of MOLA staff. Through the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s (AHRC) Collaborative Doctoral Partnership award we hope to develop future leaders, specialists and advocates for archaeology, as well as extend our strong record for academic collaboration and engagement.

MOLA are now accepting outline project proposals from UK university supervisors to be co-developed with our staff. Following a selection process, three CDP projects will be advertised to potential doctoral students next spring, and successful candidates will begin their studentships in October 2020. This will be the first of three annual cohorts of PhD research students, and further calls for studentship projects will be announced in summer 2020 and 2021.

MOLA are particularly keen to encourage project proposals that address our three key research themes:
Our discoveries: The new knowledge, techniques and specialisms that are created through our archaeological work
Citizen science: Diversity and engagement, education and citizen science, public programming, and evaluation of our own citizen science projects
Archaeology and the contemporary: Exploring the value of an archaeological approach to the contemporary world and the impact of archaeology on contemporary society

To submit a project proposal you must be a current member of academic staff at a Research Organisation directly supported by the UK funding councils. This includes most UK universities and PhD-awarding colleges. Please note, prospective students cannot apply for the scheme at this stage.
