PhD Studentship offered by Middlesex University in collaboration with Dance4, Nottingham

Developing Creativity and Artistry in Exceptional Young Dancers: an Investigation of the Dance4 CAT Programme

This PhD studentship, jointly funded by Middlesex University and Dance4, will provide an opportunity for a candidate to work in-depth with Dance4 and Professor Vida L. Midgelow. The research focuses upon the Dance4 Centre for Advanced Training (CAT) and is intended to enhance their innovative approach to dance training. This centre is part of a government initiative to support and promote the talent of gifted young people and this research will consider and extend the current provision in the light of the perceived needs of the 21st century artist.

The studentship offers a stipend of £15,590 per annum (including London weighting) plus tuition fees for 3 years.

Successful candidates will be based at Middlesex University and Dance4 providing an excellent environment in which to develop and challenge their dance/pedagogic practice.  As part of the research process candidates will be expected to attend the regular CAT sessions and also contribute to the programme.

Applications are invited from candidates with Masters qualifications, or equivalent, and who have experience in the facilitation of critically informed approaches to dance training/choreography.

If you would like to discuss the project further please contact Professor Vida L. Midgelow.

Applications will close on Friday 18th January 2013 and interviews will take place in Nottingham on Saturday February 16th 2013.
