Applications are invited by the Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies for PhD studentships in the field of Kurdish Studies commencing in October 2011. The awards have been made available through a grant awarded to the Centre for Kurdish Studies by the Kurdistan Regional Government of Iraq. It is anticipated that up to three PhD studentships will be available for the 2011/12 academic year.
Your research project may be in any discipline of the humanities and social sciences as applied to the study of the Kurds and Kurdistan, including (but not limited to) political science, history, geography, sociology, language and literature, religious studies, anthropology, and gender studies.
The studentships cover the cost of tuition fees (at the UK/EU or international level) and provide a maintenance grant of up to £12,600 a year. As part of the studentship, award holders will undertake 80 hours of work for the Centre per year during their period of registration.
Your University application form and this email will be used by the selection panel in their decision making. The selection process for these awards will take place during May 2011. We will not be interviewing applicants for these awards. All successful applicants will be notified by the end of June 2011.
Application Deadline is 29th April 2011
