Call for applications: Digital Arts and Humanities (DAH) Four-Year PhD 

DAH is a full-time four year inter-disciplinary structured PhD programme 
designed to enable students to carry out research in the arts and 
humanities at the highest level, using new media and computer 
technologies. The programme is funded by the Higher Education Authority 
under its Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions, Cycle 5 
and is co-ordinated with an all-Irish university consortium: Trinity 
College Dublin; National University of Ireland, Galway; National 
University of Ireland, Maynooth and University College Cork.  The 
programme includes additional teaching contributions from Queen's 
University Belfast, University of Ulster and the Royal Irish Academy and 
from its industrial partners, Google, IBM, and Intel.

The consortium invites applications for a number of four-year doctoral 
studentships in Digital Arts and Humanities (see below for links on the 
scholarships available in individual institutions). The studentships 
come with a stipend of 16,000 euro per year. Fees for Irish and EU 
citizens are fully covered; for information on fees relating to non-EU 
citizens, please contact the relevant contact person in each institution.

High-calibre candidates holding, or expecting to receive, a first-class 
or upper second-class honours degree in an appropriate discipline, are 
encouraged to apply. Candidates will choose to enter the programme 
within either the ARTS or the HUMANITIES strands.  All PhD programmes 
are by research thesis. The taught modules will provide you with 
technical and theoretical skills relevant for digital reearch. In both 
strands students are required to complete core, training, and career 
development modules, including main modules shared across the consortium 
and others institutionally-based.

Applications must be sent directly to your preferred institution.
