Media Art PhD scholarships at the University of Westminster, London, UK.

Dear people, please forward to those you feel may benefit.

Applications are now being invited for two full-time studentships - each 
worth £15,000 a year – in the University’s Centre for Research in 
Education, Art and Media (CREAM), in School of Media Art and Design. The 
scholarships will start in October 2009 and run for three years.

The deadline for applications is 5pm, 3rd March 2009 (UK, GMT).

The scholarships encourage both practice-led and theoretical 
applications that formulate approaches to art making through new and 
emerging media.

Scholarship subject areas are outlined below. However we encourage a 
broad interpretation of these and would be interested in receiving 
quality applications covering a range of related topics including Art 
and Science relationships, Interactive Arts, Software Art or any topic 
that scrutinises the intersections of art, society, technology and 
science and/or are interdisciplinary in nature.

Visual design applications will also be considered if they develop 
critical and innovatory approaches that fit the profile of research at 

1. Art and Computation: the Aesthetics of Information
Areas include critical and aesthetic approaches to data-mapping, 
visualisation, interactive and behavioural arts, robotics, emergence etc.

2. Art on the Web
Areas of art practice include critical and aesthetic explorations of the 
net as a site for art, and broad approaches to the idea of the network 
as a metaphoric and heterogeneous site that encompasses inter and cross 
disciplinary approaches to art making, i.e. practices that weave across 
subject domains to create new areas of critical practice and aesthetic 

Further information about these topics can be found here:

Applicants would hold, or expect to be awarded, a 2.1 honours degree or 
above and preferably a Masters degree and should, where relevant, 
demonstrate English Language competence of at least IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.
