PhD Scholarship - history of the University of St Andrews museum collections

31 January 2020

Proposals are invited for the University of St Andrews United College Scholarship, a fully funded PhD scholarship, available to research the history of the University of St Andrews museum collections. This three-year scholarship will be awarded to a PhD project researching either the University’s natural historical collections, or the collections (including natural historical specimens along with a broader range of objects) that became the Bell Pettigrew Museum in 1912.

The scholarship also offers hands-on experience working in a museums context. The student will spend a minimum of one day per week working with the Museums team on
projects relevant to their PhD research, which will be arranged flexibly to fit around other commitments.

Further information about the Scholarship can be found in the document below, or on the Museums of the University of St Andrews website.
