AHRC NPIF Doctoral Studentship Competition

Two PhD studentships in the dept of Anthropology at Durham University to start in October 2017:

- Energy and Heritage Conservation: the project will focus on sites of significant conservation challenges that can also be used to promote new energy technologies and practices. Supported by Historic England

- Ethical design for energy systems: The project will examine where and how normative assumptions are embedded in energy systems design and how ethical discourses can be developed to highlight the implications of energy system design. Supported by Ofgem.

Applications should be made through the ‘Northern Bridge’ website below, and project outlines and guidance are attached. Applicants are encouraged to contact the lead academic for the relevant projects prior to making an application. Deadline for applications 30 June 2017.

We would be very grateful for any assistance in alerting potential students for this urgent call for applications.
