AHRC-funded PhD Scholarship


The Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge, is pleased to announce a fixed term fully-funded PhD Scholarship on the AHRC-funded Project ‘Greek in Italy’. The scholarship will run from 1st October 2014 to 30th September 2017.

The PhD student will prepare a doctoral dissertation concentrating on the Greek linguistic records from Southern Italy, as evidenced by surviving inscriptions from selected Greek sites in Italy. Dr James Clackson will act as PhD supervisor and Professor Geoffrey Horrocks will act as the second supervisor.

Due to the nature of funding the studentship is only available to UK/EU citizens and must be pursued on a full-time basis. The award will pay full fees and maintenance for the period of the scholarship (this includes the maintenance costs of a successful applicant who is an EU citizen). The successful applicant is expected to have Masters’ level experience in historical Greek dialectology (by October 2014), and a proven record of outstanding achievement at both undergraduate and Master’s level.

The deadline for applications is 31st January 2014. Shortlisting and interviews will take place in February and early March.
