2 x fully-funded PhD studentships in either Medieval Literature or Medieval Studies Department of English and Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of York
Closing date for applications: 27 January 2014
Applications are invited for two PhD studentships, available from October 2014. Studentships are funded by the Centre for Medieval Literature (CML).
CML is funded by the Danish National Research Foundation until 2022. It is jointly based at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU in Odense) and the University of York (UK). CML takes an integrated European approach to medieval literature from Scandinavia to the Middle East. Research is organised into three areas: languages, fictionality, and canon formation. The work of CML is interdisciplinary (literature and history) in studying texts as embedded within social relationships. We also attend to modern receptions of medieval literature.
Successful candidates for studentships will be committed to 1) collaboration which unites scholarship across disciplines and languages; 2) creating a shared research environment across SDU and York; 3) situating the work of their PhD within a wider European framework. CML research programme and organisation: www.sdu.dk/cml
PhDs based at York will work with Professor Elizabeth Tyler (www.york.ac.uk/english/our-staff/elizabeth-tyler/). Topics can be single or co-supervised at York or across York and SDU. Co-supervision with any of the participants in the CML (www.sdu.dk/cm) or member of the Centre for Medieval Studies (www.york.ac.uk/medieval-studies/) or the Department of English (www.york.ac.uk/english) is encouraged. You will be expected to spend at least a term in Odense.
The studentship will cover EU/Home tuition fees and stipend (£13,726 per annum), tenable for three years and two months.
This opportunity is for studentships at York, those at SDU will be announced later. Students may apply to both York and SDU.
