The University of Huddersfield has launched a new PhD scholarship program alongside globally-renowned techno artist Richie Hawtin. 

Applications for ‘The Richie Hawtin PhD Scholarship in Electronic Music, Cultures and Production’ are open until 10th February, with the starting date for the scholarship set for September 2023. The single successful applicant will receive guidance and tutoring from Hawtin himself.

The University of Huddersfield’s Department of Music and Design Arts’ Professor Rupert Till says: “There is huge scope for research within this PhD. It could be anything within music, such as electronic music, dance music, club music, DJ culture or even around composition or analysis.

“Richie has set up his own labels; technology companies; an investment fund; a sake brand; has run a residency in Ibiza; and written many genre-defining albums. This is a wonderful opportunity to tap into his knowledge and experience,” he adds.

“But why the University of Huddersfield?” we hear you ask…

In 2015, Hawtin was awarded an honorary doctorate from the university in honour of his ‘outstanding’ contribution to the world of music technology.

In 2016, he also delivered a masterclass there, where he brought along his unparalleled Model One mixer to present a class and explore the immersive technology behind it.
