PhDArts Programme in Visual Art and Design
Call for Applications
PhDArts, a collaboration between the Academy and Creative and Performing Arts (ACPA) at Leiden University and the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague, The Netherlands, offers an international, high-level doctoral programme in artistic research for visual artists and designers. The PhDArts research trajectory consists of two elements: supervision of individual research and participation in the doctoral study programme. The doctoral programme includes seminars, trainings, lectures and workshops by PhDArts staff and invited guests, as well as presentations by fellow doctoral candidates of their individual research projects. Candidates are expected to attend this programme as it constitutes an essential part of the research environment in which the candidate undertakes her/his research.
Applicants must have a Master's degree or proof of study at a comparable level. As PhDArts is a practice-as-research doctorate, the applicant must first and foremost demonstrate that she/he is a highly accomplished practitioner in some aspect of the visual arts and/or design. On a theoretical level, the applicant has to demonstrate that her/his ideas are already quite well-formed and that she/he is able to position her/his own contribution within the context of a particular field of research.
Application deadline is 1 October 2018.
