PhD opportunities at Salford

From The Other Room’s Scott Thurston…
Once again, as part of the North West Consortium of universities (NWC), the University of Salford is keen to receive proposals for PhDs in a variety of Arts and Humanities subjects. If your proposal is accepted then you may be eligible for funding. We are initially looking for expressions of interest accompanied by a draft proposal by 3rd December 2015. If viable you will be asked to submit a formal proposal to Salford by the 22nd January and, if accepted at this stage, you’ll be asked to submit a funding proposal to the NWC by 12 February
Because of the nature of this email list, I would like to let you know that I am particularly interested in receiving proposals for PhDs in Creative Writing, with a focus on innovative poetic practice. I work in the context of the English Language, Literature and Creative Practice research group, which is also keen to receive proposals for PhDs in Literature across a range of areas.
Please see the following link for more details:
More information will be available on the Salford website in due course. Michael Goddard is the official contact for the School of Arts and Media ( to discuss your proposal, but please also contact me directly at if you have an idea that you wish to discuss.
