PhD Studentships in German at Durham University

Deadline: 6 January 2021
 
The School of Modern Languages and Cultures invites applications for PhD studentships through the AHRC-funded Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership.
 
The Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership offers high-quality supervision and exceptional resources, as well as the expertise of a broad portfolio of Strategic Partners for the training and development of outstanding Arts and Humanities postgraduate researchers. 
 
The awards cover tuition fees and provide a maintenance grant at the RCUK national rate for UK applicants.
 
UKRI/the AHRC has yet to confirm whether applicants who are not British citizens and do not hold settled residency status are eligible to apply for doctoral studentships after Brexit. We will update colleagues as soon as the Council clarifies the position. 
 
We welcome applications from outstanding candidates who can demonstrate evidence of academic excellence at both undergraduate and postgraduate level (or equivalent professional experience), as well as evidence of sufficient research skills to undertake the project. 
 
The Northern Bridge DTP operates two funding schemes - Standard Route studentships, and Collaborative Doctoral Awards which involve collaboration with a partner organisation. 

Applicants should consult the Subject Area Contact Professor Claudia Nitschke (claudia.nitschke@durham.ac.uk) to discuss their research proposal and potential supervisors for their project.
 
For further information about both schemes and detailed guidance notes, see http://www.northernbridge.ac.uk.
