[Commlist] 2nd Call for Participants: New Scholars - PhD/ECR Fellowship programme

Tue Nov 17 20:45:23 GMT 2020

Bristol+Bath Creative R+D <>, part of AHRC’s Creative Industry Clusters Programme, is seeking seeking *16 UK-based PhD students/Early Career Researchers* to become part of a training and development scheme, delivered as a twelve-month programme of workshops, skills development, critical exploration, funded research and collaboration.

Fellows will benefit from a year of support alongside their existing studies/work to help them boost their research ambitions, gain insight into collaborative work, and develop funded research with access to academics and creatives in the sector. Also, there will be the opportunity to co-produce the content of the scheme, and seek mutual support from a network of peers who together make up the New Scholar cohort.

Applicants should be associated with a university currently involved in the *AHRC CICP* <> scheme (including the Creative Policy and Evidence Centre), but do not have to be directly involved in the programme to be eligible. You don’t have to be part of any specific discipline. We also don’t distinguish between practice-based and more traditional research.

However, your research should broadly be concerned with one or more of the following areas: creative economy; cultures of creative or innovative practice; inclusion, participation, and social justice in creative and cultural work; ethics in creative technology; knowledge exchange and social engagement; responsible innovation, creative practice; sociology or cultures of technology; social and cultural value in the creative sector; diverse economies.

The New Scholar Fellowship Scheme <> offers:

- Four workshops, delivered through a blend of online and in-person in Bristol (where circumstances allow). The scheme will pay for any travel, accommodation, subsistence, and access support required.
- Regular online check-ins in with the team between workshops.
- A chance to build a network with your cohort of Fellows, as well as engagement with a community of academics, creative practitioners, businesses, and researchers whose work crosses the fields of creative economy, inclusion, collaboration, sustainable business, and more. - A bursary of up to £3,000 for each Fellow to conduct or enhance existing research plans, either as part of PhD fieldwork, or independent research as an ECR role. Uses could include:
* running a series of events, workshops to convene a network
* paying for consultation/collaboration with external partners
* undertaking professional development courses or similar
* Paying for the production or use of creative technologies to expand or enhance your research practice
* Conference attendance

Fellows will be supported to refine their plans for the bursary as part of the scheme, providing experience in bid writing, project planning and pitching, as well as experience managing budgets and delivering projects to a fixed timescale. Bursaries can be collaborations with other New Scholars in the cohort.
*Please note the bursary cannot be used to pay for the Fellow’s time*.
Fellows will report on bursary activity at the end of the programme, but all the spend does not need to occur during the 12 months.
