The German Sub-Faculty of the Modern and Medieval Languages Faculty at the University of Oxford is pleased to invite applications for doctoral research across the range of German Studies from the medieval period to the present day. German Studies in Oxford offers a lively community with research spanning topics in literature, linguistics, cultural history, and visual culture. Our doctoral students benefit from excellent resources and support, and opportunities to spend time at our partner universities in Germany and Switzerland. An outline of the application process, with links to detailed information, can be found at:, and the research profiles of colleagues in German at:


For candidates wishing to be considered for funding, the deadline for applications is 10 January 2020. Those from the UK and other EU countries are eligible to be considered for funding through the new AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership (shared by the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and the Open University). Applications to this programme must complete the additional application forms to be eligible for consideration (see Open-Oxford-Cambridge DTP). In addition, the University and its constituent colleges offer a range of other sources of funding, including studentships from the Clarendon Fund. The German Sub-Faculty is also pleased to be able to offer German-specific funding opportunities, including the Katritzky Foundation-Heath Harrison Scholarship in German available to candidates applying for 2020 entry.
