The University of Reading's Department of Classics is delighted to offer a funded full-time PhD studentship for an excellently qualified candidate to pursue a PhD in any field of Greek studies (archaeology, history, literature, language, philosophy, etc.). Preference may be given to a candidate who wishes to work on a topic relevant to the collections of the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology, should a suitable candidate apply.
The studentship covers the tuition fees for a three-year full-time PhD up to the rate for Home/EU students (£3,996). The successful candidate will work in the Ure Museum office for an average of two days per week during term-time (30 weeks); the duties are light and students will often have time to pursue their own work on these days. Some paid sessional teaching will also potentially be available in the department from year two of the programme.
Applicants should be highly motivated with Masters Degree or equivalent in a relevant subject. The studentship is open to both Home/EU and International students. (Non-EU students who apply for this award should note that it will only cover part of their PhD tuition fees).
