PhD Studentships in Scottish Literature at the University of Glasgow, 2014-15
Scottish Literature at the University of Glasgow is pleased to invite applications for PhD studentships through its involvement in the recently announced AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership Scotland. We welcome research proposals which relate to our research strengths in the medieval and Renaissance periods, the Eighteenth Century and Romantic periods and in Modernism, but we are keen to discuss applications on all aspects of Scottish literature. Scottish Literature also plays an active part in Scottish Studies Global here at the University of Glasgow.
Studentships are available to applicants living in the UK and the European Union. Applications for interdisciplinary projects are also very welcome. For full details, please visit the website of the newly-created Scottish Graduate School for the Arts and Humanities here: www.sgsah.ac.uk.

In addition, the College of Arts will offer a number of scholarships for PhD study in 2014. These scholarships are open to UK/EU and International applicants.
