University College London -History
Applications are invited for a doctoral studentship tenable at University College London (UCL), in collaboration with the National Maritime Museum (NMM). This doctoral award is funded though the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) under its Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships scheme. The project will be supervised by Professor Stephen Conway, Head of the History Department at UCL, and Dr James Davey, Curator of Naval History at the NMM.
Using the Royal Navy as a case study, the successful candidate will be expected to utilise a wide variety of sources to examine the nature and broader meaning of patronage in late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth century Britain. At the project’s heart will be the collections of the NMM, with particular emphasis on recently acquired manuscript material that sheds considerable new light on this subject.
