[Commlist] Fully-funded PhD opportunity: climate change and museum collections

Wed Dec 13 16:20:49 GMT 2023

*/Weathering climate change: using museum collections to represent local experiences of climate change./*

We are pleased to invite applications for a fully funded Collaborative PhD starting in September 2024, funded by the AHRC’s Collaborative Doctoral Award scheme through the London Arts and Humanities Partnership (LAHP). The project is a collaboration between King’s College London and the Museum of Cambridge.

The PhD candidate will explore how museum objects can be used to represent changing climate in a way that is relatable to everyday and place-specific concerns. They will explore new theoretical approaches to representation of climate change through museum objects, through a case study of the English Fens. The successful candidate will use the conceptual understanding they develop to explore and enrich the collections of the Museum of Cambridge, resulting in a new exhibition on Fenland weather-heritage. The project may include the collection of oral history stories of life and weather in the Fens.

The project is supervised by Dr George Adamson, an expert on climate and culture in the Department of Geography at King’s College London, and Dr Anna Woodham, Senior Lecturer Museum & Heritage Studies in the Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries. It will be co-supervised by Annie Davis, Director of the Museum of Cambridge.

The PhD project is fully funded for 3.5 years (full time) or 7 years (part time), including a £20,622 per annum tax-free stipend and all fees. The awarded candidate will also be entitled to a £550 per annum stipend top-up. The project would likely suit candidates with a strong interest in climate change, and a background in museum and heritage studies or museum and heritage practice, cultural geography, environmental studies, or similar. Applicants will require a good masters degree or relevant professional experience. More details can be found here: <>
