A consortium of the Science Museum Group Museums, BT Archives, the RGS-IBG and the Royal Society has been awarded eighteen AHRC-funded Collaborative Doctoral studentships over three years. The Science Museum, in particular, is interested in proposals concerning the history of medicine and medical anthropology relating to:

  • Sites of scientific research and their material culture: the country house, the laboratory, the asylum, the field, including industry and psychiatric research and care centres
  • Perspectives on material cultures of non-western science and medicine
  • Women in science, technology, engineering and medical workplaces
  • History of Medicine:
    • Changing understandings of the body and their impact on diagnosis and care.
    • Manifestations of changing patient-practitioner power relations in material medical culture

If you are interested in submitting a proposal and would like to discuss how it might fit with the museum’s research priorities please email Oisin Wall.
