Applications are invited for a PhD scholarship being offered by CREATe ( at the University of Glasgow. CREATe is the RCUK research centre for copyright and new business models in the creative economy. With an ambitious programme of 40 projects delivered by an interdisciplinary team of academics (law, economics, management, computer science, sociology, psychology, ethnography and critical studies), CREATe is a pioneering academic initiative designed to help the UK cultural and creative industries thrive and become innovation leaders within the global digital economy.

This project will provide the first in-depth study of the role that copyright plays in shaping the behaviour of the UK’s archival institutions, while also developing policy recommendations to enable those institutions to make their archival collections available online within a simple, straightforward, and easily understood copyright regime.

Selection Process

Applicants will be evaluated by a CREATe selection panel. The selection panel will base its decision on the applicant’s academic qualifications, the quality of the Research Statement, references, and may take into account any other factor which it considers relevant. Following a process of shortlisting which is expected to take place at the end of April, shortlisted candidates will be invited to attend an interview. In-person interviews are preferred, but where this is impractical the arrangement of telephone or Skype interviews will be considered. CREATe reserves the right to make an offer of a scholarship subject to a research proposal being revised in such manner as it sees fit, or to any other conditions, or to make no award.
