AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award (CDA) PhD studentship for Gender and histories of Arctic field science, 1900-1950
Applications are invited for an AHRC CDA doctoral studentship offered by the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, to start in the October or January of the 2020-21 academic year.
The studentship will be based in the Department of Geography and the Scott Polar Research Institute. The successful applicant will work on a collaborative project co-led by Dr Richard C. Powell email@example.com), Department of Geography (and Scott Polar Research Institute) and co-supervisor, Professor Paul Smith, Oxford University Museum of Natural History.
This project provides the opportunity to explore the histories of a range of women in the twentieth-century Arctic, including female scientists, travellers and collectors and their encounters with indigenous people. The project draw upon extensive archival records about the geologist Phyllis Wager and the writer Isobel Wylie Hutchison. The student will also be encouraged to develop a comparative focus to include other key actors involved in gendering the Arctic field sciences.
Full DTP studentships, for candidates who meet the AHRC residency requirements, will provide an annual maintenance grant to cover living costs (£15,009 pa at current rates) and will fully cover university tuition fees.
