The School of Languages and Social Sciences (LSS) invites applications for up to two fully-funded PhD studentships from strong candidates in any of the research areas covered by the School. The studentship is for full-time study over three years, commencing in October 2019.

LSS is a multi-disciplinary research-focused School which brings together researchers in the areas of Languages (French, German, Spanish), Translation Studies, Politics and International Relations, Sociology and Policy, and English. Further information on the School’s research areas can be found here.

Two additional fees-only bursaries will be available for candidates who are not successful for the fully-funded award.

1 October 2019 start date with completion date of 30 September 2022

Financial Support

Will be provided to the successful applicant to cover the Home/EU fees rate (£4,260 in academic year 2018/19) plus a maintenance grant at the standard AHRC/ESRC rate (currently £14,777) with the corresponding standard increases in subsequent years. Applicants from outside the EU may apply for these studentships but will need to pay the difference between the ‘Home/EU’ and the ‘Overseas’ tuition fees (Overseas tuition fees are £13,350 in academic year 2018/9 so the difference to pay will be in the region of £9,090 per year).

Person Specification

The successful applicant should have a first class or good upper second class honours degree or equivalent qualification in a relevant subject area. They should have, or be near to completing, a postgraduate qualification such as a Masters or equivalent. An overall merit grade with merit in the dissertation is normally required.
