About the research project
This project supports discipline-based and interdisciplinary research in the creative and performing arts, drawing on aspects of Australian and British music and associated creative cultures. Applicants in musicology, performance and music composition are invited to submit a proposal for a specialized music project drawing on the heritage of Australian and British music and seeking new ways to understand, create, and perform including investigations of historical or contemporary performance practice. Interdisciplinary projects are welcomed, which may include collaborations with other creative arts, humanities, Antarctic studies, social sciences, health, physical sciences or education.
Applicants will be considered for a Research Training Program (RTP) scholarship or Tasmania Graduate Research Scholarship (TGRS) which, if successful, provides:
- a living allowance stipend of $28,597 per annum (2021 rate, indexed annually) for 3.5 years;
- a relocation allowance of up to $2,000; and
- a tuition fees offset covering the cost of tuition fees for up to four years (domestic applicants only)
If successful, international applicants will receive a University of Tasmania Fees Offset for up to four years.
As part of the application process you may indicate if you do not wish to be considered for scholarship funding.
The project is open to domestic (Australian and New Zealand) and international applicants who are already in Australia (onshore) at the time of submitting their application.
