AHRC Doctoral Studentship: Monastic Planning in Medieval Scotland


The collaborating partners in this project are the School of Art History of the University of St Andrews and Historic Scotland. The student will be based primarily in the School of Art History of the University of St Andrews.

The student will gather and collate the architectural, archaeological and documentary evidence for the wider precincts of Scottish religious houses founded between the revival of the Church in the early twelfth century and the Reformation in 1560. S/he will bring together a detailed body of information on the ways in which the houses of the various orders met their religious, social and economic needs in the buildings they planned and built for themselves.

The successful candidate for the studentship will have a first or good upper-second class degree in art history, archaeology or history, and preferably will be able to demonstrate an established interest in medieval architecture.

The commencement date of the award will be 1 October 2014
