Queens University Belfast & the BBC

Queens University Belfast & the BBC 

The AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award now available through the Institute for Collaborative Research in the Humanities at Queen’s University Belfast will be undertaken in association with BBC Northern Ireland (BBC NI).  It offers a Doctoral student interested in a key aspect of regional broadcast history the opportunity to work in a structured way, and under careful co-supervision outside an academic environment, on a vocationally-relevant project directly related to their core research interests. As our collaborative partner in this pilot scheme, the BBC will encourage the doctoral researcher to make optimum use of its available resources and networks. In the course of so doing he or she will be offered expert training in archive research, interview techniques, media awareness and team working, and given curatorial experience and publication opportunities that they would not normally expect to receive at this professional level until they had entered full-time employment at the BBC. The doctoral researcher will reach a level of understanding of BBC archives, procedures and personnel experience that is not otherwise readily available for academic researchers.
