Matthew

AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award
Doctoral Studentship in Contemporary Punch and Judy in Performance

Applications are invited for a three-year doctoral studentship, funded by
the Arts and Humanities Research Council, to be held jointly at Royal
Holloway, University of London and the Punch and Judy College of Professors,
starting in September 2006. Applicants will work closely with the select
professional puppeteers who are members of the Punch and Judy College to
produce an ethnographic study on Britain's traditional puppet theatre as it
is practiced today.

Research will be jointly supervised by Dr Matthew Isaac Cohen of Royal
Holloway, University of London, and Clive Chandler of the Punch and Judy
College of Professors. The successful candidate will be based at Royal
Holloway, University of London, and will partake in all training courses and
review procedures for postgraduate students in the Department of Drama and
Theatre.

Applicants should be holders of a good first degree (at least 2:1 or
equivalent) from any university in one of the following fields: puppetry,
theatre and performance studies, cultural studies, anthropology or closely
related disciplines. A relevant MA, completed or close to completion, would
be an advantage.

The studentship will cover the cost of tuition fee for home or EU students;
an annual maintenance award for home students of ?14,300 in the first year,
rising to approximately ?14,600 in the second year and ?14,965 in the third;
and ?1000 in travel expenses for home or EU students. The student will also
benefit from family-style hospitality from Punch and Judy College of
Professors members when conducting fieldwork outside of the greater London
area. The studentship is tenable for up to three years (full-time), subject
to academic progression. Note that AHRC regulations restrict the award of
full stipend plus fees to UK candidates who have lived in the UK for three
years prior to the date of application. Candidates from other EU countries
may be eligible for a fees only studentship.

Closing date for applications is 1 May 2006.
