Research at University College Falmouth is about ideas: generating them, applying them, sharing them. Our emphasis is on practice-led and user-led inquiry that is collaborative in nature and multidisciplinary in scope.

We now invite applications for 16 new studentships for doctoral study, starting in October 2009, in areas that match our range of supervisory expertise in Art, Media, Design and Performance and that will contribute to the advancement of Cornwall’s knowledge economy.

In particular, and to coincide with our involvement in the Design Council’s Designs of the Time initiative in Cornwall, we would welcome proposals in aspects of user-centred design. Given our status as a national Skillset Media Academy and our plans for a new Academy for Innovation & Research, we are also particularly interested in questions around emerging media technologies, sustainable design, arts and the environment, creative communities, industries and networks.

We strongly recommend that applicants discuss potential proposals with one of the following members of staff - all of whom are well-placed to refer inquiries to the most appropriate colleague.
