Birkbeck, University of London, and the British Library are advertising a fully-funded PhD Studentship on RE-EVALUATING THE STATUS OF PRINTS AT THE BRITISH LIBRARY.

According to the description on their website:

The focus of this project is on identifying, researching and analysing the provenance, changing status and visibility of about 500 books of prints in the British Library’s collection, using an 1812 unpublished finding list as a starting point.

This project will be jointly supervised by Kate Retford at Birkbeck (Professor of History of Art, School of Historical Studies) and Felicity Myrone at the British Library (Lead Curator, Western Prints and Drawings). The student will spend time with both Birkbeck and the British Library and will become part of the wider cohort of AHRC CDP funded PhD students across the UK.  

The studentship comes with the National Minimum Doctoral Stipend for the academic year 2024/25, which is £19,237 per annum, plus an additional £2,000 and £550 per year due to London weighting and CDP maintenance payments respectively. Applications must be in by 29th April 2024.

Good luck if you're applying!
