Vertigo in the City: University of Westminster, London
Applications are being invited for a full-time studentship, consisting of a fee waiver and annual stipend of £16,000, for three years commencing in January 2016 to candidates with a Home fee status.
Hosted by the Faculty of Architecture & the Built Environment in collaboration with the Department of Psychology, Vertigo in the City is a cross-disciplinary research project led by Dr Davide Deriu. Prompted by the rapid growth of vertical cities around the world – and drawing on perspectives from the sciences, arts and humanities – the project explores the implications of vertigo-inducing environments for the health and wellbeing of city dwellers in the global context.
The successful applicant will be invited to develop an appropriate research direction and methodology to investigate how states of dizziness and disorientation are linked with the experience of urban environments. Applications that take an international approach are particularly welcome.
The closing date for applications is 5pm 30 September 2015.
