Newcastle holds a Wellcome Master’s Programme Award for its MA in the History of Medicine programme, and will be offering two fully funded studentships (fees + stipend + research opportunities) for September 2020 entry. Full details of how to apply can be found here. Please note the upcoming deadline (April 3rd), and note that candidates need to have been accepted on to the MA programme before we can consider their application for a studentship.
We host a growing network of medical humanities researchers at Newcastle across the humanities, social sciences and creative arts; we welcome expressions of interest from those wishing to pursue doctoral research in this field, and are happy to discuss supporting applications for funding from the Wellcome Trust to suitable candidates. We also encourage medical humanities postdoctoral researchers to consider an application to the NUAcT Fellowship scheme (Newcastle University Academic-Track Fellowship) – this scheme enables early career researchers to access a generous support package for five years to develop a programme of research; fellows are expected to move to an open-ended academic contract at Newcastle at the end of their fellowship, subject to a successful review. The deadline for applications under this scheme is March 6th.
