This may be of interest to some:

The National Archives has been awarded an allocation of three Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships<http://www.ahrc.ac.uk/funding/opportunities/current/collaborativedoctoralpartnerships/> (CDPs), due to start in October 2020.
CDPs are PhD studentships jointly supervised by heritage organisations and Higher Education institutions, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)<https://ahrc.ukri.org/>. Each student has at least one supervisor at The National Archives and one at a university. These studentships are fully funded, with tuition fees and a maintenance grant covered by the AHRC and additional travel expenses available from The National Archives.
We are currently inviting applications for the below PhDs in collaboration with the University of Leeds and the University of Reading. Our PhD in collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University will be advertised on our website soon (please contact research@nationalarchives.gov.uk<mailto:research@nationalarchives.gov.uk> for more information).
British State Provision of Prosthetic Limbs and the Two World Wars
Jointly supervised by Dr Jessica Meyer<https://ahc.leeds.ac.uk/history/staff/974/dr-jessica-meyer>, University of Leeds and Dr Laura Robson-Mainwaring, The National Archives.
The PhD student will explore how the experiences of British limbless ex-servicemen of the two world wars both shaped, and were shaped by, politics, social relations and the economy. Key themes might include the interactions between the State, prosthetic limb manufacturers and individual servicemen, and how these changed over time.
We particularly welcome applications that address such issues as the agency of disabled individuals; the production and distribution of medical technologies; and the developing significance of disability issues on economic and social policy.

The closing date for applications is Friday 26 June 2020.
