This is to advertise an AHRC-funded PhD studentship (Collaborative Doctoral Award) on the legacy of WW1 for women, for which applications are invited.


The student will use the Old Comrades Association journals of the women’s auxiliary forces, 1920-1940s, held at the Imperial War Museum, among other sources. The supervisors will be Penny Summerfield and Charlotte Wildman, both at University of Manchester, and Sarah Paterson, in Library Services at the Imperial War Museum London.


The deadline for applications is Thursday 3 March 2016. Interviews will be in London on Tuesday 15 March 2016.
