Birkbeck and the National Gallery, London have annouced a fully funded Collaborative Doctoral Studentship under the UK AHRC’s Collaborative Doctoral Partnership Scheme from October 2021. The research project—”London’s National Gallery and the ‘Centre of Empire’, 1824-1924″—investigates and maps the impact of empire on the origins and development of The National Gallery, focussing on the first century of donors, trustees and patrons since its foundation in 1824.

The studentship is open to both UK and overseas applicants. The student will be expected to spend time at both Birkbeck and the National Gallery and to become an active member of both academic and research communities, as well as belonging to the wider cohort of CDP students across the UK.

Applicants should ideally have or expect to receive a relevant Master’s-level qualification, or be able to demonstrate equivalent experience in a professional setting.
