Parry Williams Doctoral Studentship in Music
School of Music, Bangor University

This award is named after D. E. Parry Williams (1900-1996), the first Head of School at Bangor; it is funded by an endowment at the University in his memory. For more than a decade now, the Parry Williams fund has supported excellent undergraduate and postgraduate students in Music.

The School is inviting applications from candidates with outstanding research potential in any area of music, but especially for doctoral projects that fall within the established research groups or the remit of staff research interests (including musicology, composition, electroacoustic composition, sonic arts and performance). Applications are particularly welcome from students working in David Parry Williams’s own specialist areas: Welsh music and composition.

The award will consist of a bursary of £7,500 per annum for a period of three years.

To be eligible prospective students must fulfil the conditions for doctoral study and have been offered a place as a PhD student at Bangor University. The successful candidate will be expected to take up his/her studies at Bangor in the autumn of 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter.

As a PhD student in Bangor, you would be part of a lively and close-knit scholarly environment, in which musicological and practice-based research take equally important roles. Established in 1884, Bangor University benefits from its stunning geographical location between the Snowdonia National Park and the North Wales coast, and has excellent transport links to London (3 hours by train), the north west of England and the Midlands, and the Republic of Ireland.


Candidates must submit the following:

(1)An online application form for the PhD programme

(2)A proposal of the doctoral research project (up to 2,000 words as a PDF, sent to g.griffith@bangor.ac.uk ). This should address the following aspects:

(b)research context in which the question is located


(d)previous experience in the field and preparedness for the task

(e)contribution to knowledge and understanding expected to result from the project

(f)link(s) with research environment and/or staff expertise at Bangor

The proposal document should also include samples of your previous work, either within the PDF, or as links to online materials.

(3)A detailed CV (as a separate PDF, sent to g.griffith@bangor.ac.uk ), including a list of recent work (dissertations, compositions, performances, articles, conference papers, recordings, etc.) as applicable.

Deadline: Friday, 31 May 2013
