(UK) - University to build significant lighting design research group.

Edinburgh Napier University is providing 25 fully funded doctoral studentships to celebrate 50 years of the university. The studentships cover the full range of research subject areas that the university specialises in (including Health, Business Management, Civil Engineering, Sustainable Construction, Computer Science, Creative Industries (Art and Design), Electrical Engineering, Material Sciences, Environmental Science, Literature and Publishing, Tourism, Heritage and Culture, Transport).

Lighting design will be a major part of the growth in research groups at the university.

Malcolm Innes, Lecturer and Senior Research Fellow at the university, commented: “We have ambitious plans to build a significant research group in the area of lighting design. All applications are very welcome, but I would be especially interested in applications in the area of museum and gallery lighting, the perception of brightness and conservation standards in lighting.”

Applications from potential students need to be handed in by July 7th. Successful applicants will join a lively and thriving research student community and undertake original research in their chosen specialism, within one of the University's broad areas of identified excellence as indicated above.

To further support students' specific research interests and generic skills acquisition, Edinburgh Napier provides access to a range of researcher capacity-building opportunities, including guidance on career development and researcher development in the areas of: literature reviewing; quantitative and qualitative research methods, high-level communication/presentation skills and research ethics and governance.
