Micro Machines PhD Scholarship

We are currently recruiting a full PhD scholarship as part of the StoryFutures research team, based in the Geography Department. The PhD will explore how creative and immersive industry micro-businesses and freelancers can develop new products, what resources they need to achieve this (financial, networked, collective, social and geographical), and what value does this bring to the cluster as a whole (defined along similar thematic lines).

The studentship includes a stipend of £16,777 (plus fees at home/EU rates) for three years. It will start in January 2019 or as close as possible thereafter.

Full details of the PhD project and scholarship are available here.
