LDoc has been successful in obtaining AHRC funding for Post-Doctoral Innovation Placements of between six and twelve months.

 

These placements provide a valuable opportunity for recent graduates to work with creative industry partners, whilst also enabling time and space for developing the broader transferable skills that emerge from doctoral research.   At the heart of this funding lies the drive to further develop knowledge exchange between Higher Education and industry and so enhance the potential impact of doctoral research.

 

The funding for this scheme comes from the National Productivity Investment Fund, which aims to increase the capability of the UK’s skilled workforce across both industry and academia, delivering the skills and knowledge needed to deliver long term increases in productivity in the UK.

 

One full-time placement (or part-time equivalent) is available from LDoc.

 

Applications can be initiated either by a partner organisation or by a student.

 

Completed applications should be submitted, together with a student CV no later than 5pm on 7th September.
