2 PhD Studentships 2013-2016


Arctic Domus is offering up to two PhD studentships 2013-2016. Deadline for applications 15 April 2013

The Department of Anthropology is offering one and perhaps two interdisciplinary 3-year PhD studentships to start in September 2013. The studentship will include full UK/Europe fees and a maintenance stipend set at RCUK rates. The successful applicant(s) will submit a proposal which fits within the research topic of 'Arctic Domestication' as specified on the project website arcticdomus.org. The student(s) are expected to do field research in at least one of the seven circumpolar regions covered by the project and to integrate one of the four component disciplines of the project (anthropology, history of science, archaeology, genetics).

The applicants should apply to the PhD programme in Anthropology. There is no separate application but there are several extra elements of information required:

  • the candidates should make clear in their application that they are appling for an Arctic Domus studentship;
  • the candidates should supply a writing sample of approximately 20 pages (chapter, published paper)
  • the candidates should supply a research proposal of 2 pages of A4 (single spaced) explaining the their topic and its relation to the reseach project
  • the candidates should supply a 1/2 page budget for fieldwork and equipment

The deadline for applications is 15 April 2013
