Brigstow Studentships

Brigstow's Studentships are paid opportunities for research students at the University of Bristol to experience undertaking interdisciplinary and coproduced research.

Due to the nature of interdisciplinary work, the studentships that Brigstow fund are often seeking a mix of disciplines and skills, from poetry to robotics, from creative methods to data analysis, from law to sound.

Many opportunities are also with research projects that are coproduced, giving you the opportunity to experience researching collaboratively with community partners and organisations across the city and beyond.

Browse our open calls to discover a studentship that you are interested in and if you don’t feel you’re a perfect fit, please still consider applying – this is as much about your career and skills development as it is about assisting a research project.

Working as part of an interdisciplinary research team was a brilliant experience. As well as new skills, I developed a greater insight into the breadth of research being carried out across the faculties. Exploring new perspectives and ways of working helped me to develop my own research ideas and approaches.
