Thanks to a generous grant from the A G Leventis Foundation, three postgraduate studentships are available for students who wish to pursue a full-time higher degree programme (MA by Research, MRes or PhD) in the fields of Modern Greek (including Cypriot) literature, language, history and culture at the University of Birmingham (UK). Candidates should have a first class or upper second class degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject. To apply for PhD, candidates should also have completed, or be completing, a master’s degree in a relevant subject. Applicants will be asked to provide a detailed research proposal, two references and a transcript of qualifications.
The studentships will cover University fees for one year only (at the rate applicable to UK and EU students) and may be applied for annually subject to a satisfactory progress report. Subsistence costs will not be covered.
The deadline for the submission of applications is Friday 22 June 2012.
For advice on research topics for which supervision is available contact Professor Dimitris Tziovas – email@example.com.
