Royal Institute of Art Doctoral Studentship

The Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, Sweden, in conjunction with the National Artistic Research School in Sweden, announces a doctoral studentship in fine art. Application deadline is 20 April 2010.

Applications are welcome from those who wish to deepen their artistic practice and engage with a creative and reflective process. The proposed research project will have grown out of the applicant's previously undertaken artistic practice. The aim of the doctoral project is to develop an extensive body of work that shall be publicly presented and to present a documentation of this process in an appropriate format. The documentation should include accessible critical, contextual and reflective elements.

While allowing the research project to enrich the individual understanding, it is envisaged that the outcomes of the research project will contribute to existing discourses surrounding artistic approaches to making. The Royal Institute of Art's commitment to research is driven by an ambition to highlight and promote a continual development of artistic achievements within the context of higher art education. It also aims to open up ways in which artistic knowledge can be articulated within its own field, and to examine its own conditions upon which creative work is made.

The Doctoral Program comprises 240 ECTS-credits (4 years of full-time studies) of which 60 ECTS-credits cover seminars and courses and 180 ECTS-credits the individual research. The program starts 1 September 2010.
