Applications are invited under the Arts & Humanities Research Council Collaborative Doctoral Awards scheme for the project ‘The collection, display and reception of fourteenth- and fifteenth-century Sienese paintings in Britain, 1850-1950’.

The successful applicant will be supervised at the Courtauld Institute by Dr Joanna Cannon, and at the National Gallery by Dr Caroline Campbell.  A high degree of preparedness for independent research is expected, including the ability to develop the project and the necessary languages and research skills to carry it out. Applicants will have a master’s degree in Art History or an appropriate related discipline and will be familiar with the study of Italian art of the Trecento and/or Quattrocento, or of British later nineteenth/early twentieth-century interest in Italian Art.

The award is for three years beginning in September 2014 and covers fees and maintenance.  AHRC award eligibility requires the applicant to be resident in the UK for the preceding three years, with no restrictions on the time they may remain in the UK.  EU students are eligible for a full award if they have been resident in the UK for the three years prior to the start of the award.
