SGSAH Doctoral Internship Programme 2022-23
The SGSAH Doctoral Internship Programme is open to arts and humanities PhD students in Scotland, regardless of funding source. Any doctoral researcher that meets the following criteria can benefit from this programme:
- You are registered at a SGSAH member HEI;
- You are in 2nd or early in your 3rd year (full time equivalent) at 1 October 2022*;
- You are studying an arts and humanities discipline. The AHRC’s subject coverage is here;
- You are eligible to work in the UK;
- You have not already undertaken an internship or residency through SGSAH’s programme.
SGSAH’s Knowledge Exchange Hubs build connections between doctoral researchers in arts and humanities, society and the economy. They deliver industry-focused training events in collaboration with our industry partners across the creative arts, heritage and third sectors.
There are three KE Hubs, each with different sectoral focus. All of the Hubs will be delivering year-round training events. All events are free to attend and in most cases travel expenses will be met. To receive information about these events, we invite you to sign up here. You can also sign up to our Discipline+ Catalysts if you are interested.
SGSAH organises internships and artist residencies for PhD researchers to spend up to three months at a partner host organisation, enabling you to enhance your research skills in a wide variety of contexts. These exciting opportunities give you the chance to make a difference to an organisation, whilst developing your skills, networks and CV to take you to the next stage of your career.
Projects can be worked full time, part time or flexibly in blocks. We will pay you the equivalent of an UKRI stipend rate for the duration of your internship or residency and can help with travel and accommodation costs if these aren’t funded by your host organisation. The programme is open to arts and humanities PhD students in Scotland, regardless of funding source.
The Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities hosts an annual Doctoral Research Showcase to illustrate the innovative research being undertaken by arts & humanities doctoral researchers across Scotland.
In the absence of a physical showcase in 2020-21, we launched a new Digital Showcase, Interconnected Scotland, to share the diverse, exciting and pioneering work of arts & humanities doctoral researchers. After a two year hiatus, the physical showcase returned in June 2022 at the Technology & Innovation Centre in Glasgow. Five diverse, exciting and pioneering projects were featured. Although the event has now passed, our PhD exhibitors shared a digital overview of their research which is now published on sgsahresearch.com.
Information about our forthcoming research showcase will be launched in Spring 2023. In the meantime, we hope you will join with us digitally to celebrate our students research, view and engage with their work and learn more about how the multiple perspectives of arts & humanities disciplines can help us to interpret an increasingly complex world.
