      Funding for Doctoral Research in Russian and East European Studies at the University of Manchester

      The University of Manchester is offering a range of awards to which candidates working on topics related to Russia and Eastern Europe are eligible to apply. The three main awards, which comprise a fee-bursary and a maintenance grant, are ESRC studentships in Language-Based Area Studies, AHRC studentships and the University-funded President’s Doctoral Scholar awards.

      1. The North West Doctoral Training Centre, jointly run by the Universities of Lancaster, Liverpool and Manchester, is offering 3 PhD studentships in Language-Based Area Studies, in fields which include Russian and East European Studies. This award covers home/EU fees and offers a maintenance grant. (Last year the value of the grant was £ 13,590.) Successful candidates will be based at the University of Manchester. The University has wide-ranging expertise in Russian and East European Studies with relevant members of staff based across the Faculty of Humanities, particularly in the School of Social Sciences and the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. In 2008, Russian and East European Studies at Manchester was assessed in the UK's independent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) as the best in the country for research in the field. We will be able to offer supervision on a wide range of topics on Russian and East European societies, politics and history.
      For description of the North West DTC and of the opportunities for post-graduate studies which it offers, please go to http://www.nwdtc.ac.uk/prospective.html
      The deadline for the application for the ESRC studentships is Monday 4 February, 2013. Please note that prior to this deadline you should apply for a place on the PhD programme in one of the two Schools mentioned above. The online application should be submit to the Schools by Thursday 17 January 2013. The choice of School will depend on the location of the member of staff you wish to be supervised by.

      Dr Ewa Ochman, School of Arts, Languages and Cultures, at ewa.ochman@...

      2. The Department of Russian and East European Studies in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures is keen to receive applications for the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) award from candidates working on topics related to Russia and Eastern Europe. AHRC awards provide payment of tuition fees and a maintenance stipend for UK students, and tuition fees (and a maintenance stipend, subject to eligibility criteria) for EU students. Please note that you must have an offer of a place on an appropriate doctoral programme before you can be considered for an AHRC studentship in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures.
      An online application for a place on a doctoral programme should be submitted to the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures by Friday 1 February 2013 at the latest; a completed funding application form must be received by the School by Friday 1 March 2013.

      3. In 2011 the University of Manchester launched a new 2.5m investment in PhD training with the creation of the President’s Doctoral Scholar Awards. These awards are open to all new PhD students from all nationalities and research areas. The Department of Russian and East European Studies in the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures is keen to receive applications for this funding scheme from candidates working on topics related to Russia and Eastern Europe. The award covers tuition fees (home/EU or international, as appropriate) and the equivalent of the research council stipend (£13, 590 in 2012-13). The following application deadlines should be observed in relation to this award:
      An application for a place on a doctoral programme should be submitted to the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures by Friday 1 February 2013 at the latest; a completed funding application form should be submitted by Friday 1 March 2013.
