Trinity College Dublin, Digital Arts and Humanities Programme – Applications Invited for 4-year PhD Studentship

A four-year structured doctoral research-training programme designed to enable students to carry out research in the arts and humanities at the highest level using new media and computer technologies.

Candidates will choose to enter the programme within either the ARTS or the HUMANITIES strands.  In both strands they are required to complete core, training and career development modules, including main modules shared across the consortium and others institutionally-based. The overall aim of the taught modules are threefold: 

1) to introduce students to the history and theoretical issues in digital arts/humanities;
2) to provide the skills needed to apply advanced computational and information management paradigms to humanities/arts research;
3) to provide an enabling framework for students to develop generic and transferable skills to carry out their final research projects/dissertations.  The aim of the research is to enable students to develop and synthesise a PhD dissertation.

DAH students at Trinity College Dublin will be supported by two of the University’s flagship research units, the Trinity Long Room Hub ( and the Arts Technology Research Lab(, each with its own bespoke facilities on Trinity's city-centre campus.  Studentships are available for the Schools of Drama, Film and Music, English, Histories and Humanities, Languages, Literatures and Cultural Studies, Linguistic, Speech and Communications Sciences, Religions, Theology and Ecumenics, and the Department of Philosophy.

High-calibre candidates holding, or expecting to receive, a first-class or upper second-class honours degree in an appropriate discipline are encouraged to apply.
