One Departmental Research Studentship
Students proposing research in the following subject area will be prioritised for this Studentship: borders in global politics (including the transformation of borders under conditions of globalization); theorizing borders in a global age; involvement of citizens in bordering and debordering; differentiated, diffuse, networked, and mobile borders.
The Department of Politics and International Relations Research Studentship covers tuition fees at the standard home/EU rate (currently GBP 3,168 per year full-time), plus a top-up Departmental Assistantship of GBP 5,350.
This is tenable for up to three years for full-time study.
Holders of the Departmental Research Studentship will be required to provide 4 hours of teaching per week as a condition of their Studentship.
Both studentships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence to new students who will commence a research programme in the academic year, from the UK, from the EU or from overseas.
Please note that students who have already started their programme are not eligible for consideration.
Students from overseas will be liable for overseas fee rates but may use the home/EU amount to pay towards the extra costs.
In order to be considered for the awards, candidates are advised to contact Dr James Sloam (firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the Thomas Holloway studentship, and Dr Chris Rumford (email@example.com ), for the departmental studentship, as soon as possible.
Candidates should apply for a place in the Department no later than 8th June.
