CDP students outside the museum, October 2016

IWM supervises several Collaborative Doctoral Award students who are researching their PhDs through the Arts and Humanities Research Council's Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships Scheme. 

CDAs are supervised by a member of staff at IWM and an academic at a UK university. The projects offer the possibility for students to combine academic work leading to a doctorate with the acquisition of practical skills and work experience outside the university context.


Current Opportunities

IWM is part of the AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnership consortium, and hosts a number of CDP PhD studentships each year. New opportunities will be advertised in Spring 2022.
