PhD Funding Opportunities

AHRC/CHASE Collaborative Doctoral Award PhD Scholarship

AHRC/CHASE Collaborative Doctoral Award PhD Scholarship in collaboration with University of Kent and RCVS Knowledge, (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Trust)

Professionalising animal medicine: the RCVS and Veterinary Surgeons Act, 1881

This collaborative doctoral award is jointly supervised between RCVS Knowledge (operating as RCVS Knowledge) and the University of Kent’s School of History.
Located at the intersection of history of science and medicine and history of animals, this project seeks to understand the reasons for and effects of the Veterinary Surgeons Act, 1881. It examines how and why the medical treatment of animals came to be professionally delimited within England, and with what effect upon the human-animal nexus.

Working in the RCVS collections and elsewhere, the student will have considerable autonomy to develop the project based on archival discoveries.

In addition to developing their academic skills, the student will have the opportunity of working within a professional body at RCVS Knowledge.

The successful applicant will have staff-level access to the RCVS collections and communicational and digital media training opportunities.
