We are looking for exceptional candidates for full-time postgraduate study in the Department of Typography at Reading. The University will award one AHRC-funded studentship for our practice-based MA programmes: Book Design, Information Design or Typeface Design, with entry in October 2011.
We will also be putting candidates forward for doctoral and MA studentships funded by the University of Reading.
These schemes offer different levels of support depending on your country of origin and residence (AHRC is only open to UK/EU applicants, but UoR to all nationals. They are very competitive. Read the details, and if you have questions email Carolyn Davidson at email@example.com . The links below are thin on details; if you are interested, email Carolyn at first instance, with a description of your background and area of work. If you are a current student you will need to be predicted a high grade at graduation. Be prepared to work very quickly to put in a good application, and think about possible referees.
Send your completed applications (including two references) to Elaine Harris by Friday 18th February 2011 at Joint Faculty Admissions Office, University of Reading, HUMSS 126D, Reading RG6 6AA (firstname.lastname@example.org).
