Fully Funded Doctoral Studentships – Creative Multilingualism
The Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages at the University of Oxford is delighted to invite applications for 3 fully-funded D.Phil. (Oxford’s Ph.D.) studentships tenable from 1st October 2017. These studentships are offered in association with the AHRC-funded Creative Multilingualism programme.
The Faculty is one of the leading centres for the study of European languages, literature, and culture world-wide, offering expertise in the entire chronological range from the earliest times to the present day, and with specialists in film studies, cultural studies, history of the book, and cultural history as well as languages and literatures. The Faculty offers expertise in Celtic, French, German, Italian, Modern Greek, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish and Czech, as well as in a range of other languages spoken in Europe. For more information about the Faculty, see http://www.mod-langs.ox.ac.uk/
We are particularly interested in receiving applications from candidates proposing to work in the following areas, although applications that take forward the research of the programme in other ways will also be considered:
Languages in the Creative Economy – especially Russian theatre or Russian opera - http://www.creativeml.ox.ac.uk/research/creative-economy
Multilingual Literatures - http://www.creativeml.ox.ac.uk/research/world-literatures
The studentships are for three years and are open to students of any nationality. Each studentship will cover University and College fees with a stipend equivalent to the Research Councils UK national minimum stipend (£14,057 in 2015). Candidates will be expected to have completed a Master’s degree by the time they take up the studentship and should not yet have formally commenced a doctoral project.
