PhD research opportunity opens for applications

As part of the collaboration between the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and the University of Birmingham at The Other Place, there is an exciting opportunity for a University of Birmingham PhD student to work with an RSC artist for up to a total of one week over the spring/summer semesters of 2016.

The collaboration is based on a mutual aspiration to develop a unique hub for rehearsal, training, learning and creativity. It seeks to redefine the relationship between academic work and artistic practice and support the long-term development of the spirit, influence and authority of  The Other Place as a centre for creative and academic exchange.

Students are invited to submit a proposed research question that complements one of the research and development areas of participating RSC artists.

The deadline for applications is Tuesday 8 December 2015. Another opportunity will be available in 2016/17. 

Please note the deadline has now passed
