Funded PhD Opportunities at UW-Milwaukee in LIS
The School of Information Studies (SOIS) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, a 2010 recipient of an Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant, invites applicants for the fall 2011 PhD cycle.
The SOIS grant program, entitled “Overcoming Barriers to Information Access (B2A): Educating the Next Generation of Library and Information Science Leaders,” addresses the need for new PhDs in SOIS’ three key areas of doctoral study: information organization, information policy and information retrieval. The goal of the program is to enhance library and information science education and to help develop library leaders.
SOIS is currently seeking applications for six funded full-time doctoral positions under this grant program for fall 2011. The deadline to apply for this opportunity is January 15, 2011.
Participants in the B2A program will receive three or four years of funding to cover tuition, a generous annual stipend/scholarship, research and teaching opportunities, resources to support their research and travel, and mentoring from SOIS faculty members during their studies.
