Informationen zu diesem Beitrag
|Institution:||University of Leicester, Leicester|
The University of Leicester is one of the UK's leading universities, committed to international excellence through the creation of world changing research and high quality, inspirational teaching. In 2008/2009 we were named the Times Higher Education's University of the Year, with the judges describing us as "elite without being elitist". The Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies - the oldest Holocaust research centre in the UK - is pleased to offer a scholarship for October 2012 entry to its Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme. The scholarship will pay full-time University UK/EU tuition fees for three years (pro-rata for part-time study).
The successful applicant's research project will be supervised by a member of staff in the Stanley Burton Centre for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, part of the University's School of Historical Studies.
We welcome applications from those looking to work in areas that relate to ongoing research at the Centre. The research interests of the Centre and its staff include the history of the Holocaust in Europe, other cases of mass violence in 20th Century Europe (especially central and eastern Europe) and its colonies, as well as memory in post-violence societies including Holocaust representation.
Applicants must have a first-class or high upper second-class honours degree (or equivalent qualification) in history or a relevant discipline and meet the University's standard English language entry requirements. It is expected that applicants should also have a Masters degree with merit or distinction in a relevant discipline or be able to show evidence that they will achieve this before October 2012. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a strong interest in research and it is desirable that applicants be proficient in at least one language other than English.
This scholarship is open to suitable new UK/EU and International (i.e., outside the EU) applicants. Please note though that the award covers tuition fees at the UK/EU rate only. International applicants (and those not eligible to pay UK/EU tuition fees) must demonstrate at the time of their application that they can fund the difference in tuition fee rates.
The scholarship is for full- or part-time study (paid pro-rata in the case of part-time study). Owing to UK visa restrictions, international applicants are not normally able to study part-time. Applicants must be able to commence their studies in October 2012.
