AHRC Midlands3Cities funding for UK/EU students

The Midlands3Cities doctoral training partnership is a collaboration between the universities of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent, Leicester, De Montfort, Birmingham and Birmingham City. The DTP is in the third of five years, awarding up to 89 PhD Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) studentships for UK/EU applicants for 2016 entry. M3C provides research candidates with cross-institutional mentoring, expert supervision (including cross-institutional supervision where appropriate), subject-specific and generic training, and professional support in preparing for a career.

**The Department of Music at the University of Nottingham** is inviting applications. We have particular interests in four broad, overlapping areas:

2. music—text—image
opera; film and TV; ballet; music and visual cultures; pervasive media; music for screen and stage; music and poetry; music and sculpture

3. musical creativity and community
18th-century pedagogy; jazz; popular music in the Far East; American popular tradition; composition; contemporary performance practice; performance with new technologies; music and health

4. music, politics and identity
music and conflict; music and democracy; composing for American vernacular instruments; music and revolution; the politics of musical modernism; music and social mobility; music and minorities, ethnicity and nationality

The deadline for AHRC M3C funding applications is **12 January 2016**, by which time students must have applied for a place to study and have provided two references to a university within the DTP.
