CBA and University of York announce collaborative PhD opportunity

The CBA are pleased to announce two new Doctoral Awards looking at the different aspects of archaeological stewardship.

The ‘Adopting Archaeology’ project will examine the impact and sustainability of archaeological stewardship of heritage. These three-year PhD studentships are fully funded, thanks to the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and are a collaboration between the CBA and the University of York’s Department of Archaeology.

This unique opportunity will allow the chosen candidates to gain a PhD by undertaking original research and gain practical experience by working closely with the CBA in their offices. The PhDs will be jointly supervised by Dr Gill Chitty and Dr John Schofield from the University of York and the CBA’s Director, Dr Mike Heyworth.

Closing date for applications is 11 May and the studentships will begin in October 2015.
