PhD Scholorship: Folklore and Literature of the Caucasus Region

Deadline: June 30, 2013

Thanks to a generous donation, the Department of Russian and Slavonic Studies at the University of Sheffield invites applications for a fully-funded PhD scholarship dedicated to the folklore and literature of the Caucasus region. Proposals may pertain to the folklore and literature itself, the history of scholarship on the question, and the role they have played in the formation of social and cultural identity. Fluency in Russian language is essential, and knowledge of one Caucasian language would be an advantage.

The scholarship includes all University fees, a grant for living expenses and funds for approved research expenses. Potential applicants are encouraged to contact Professor Craig Brandist c.s.brandist@sheffield.ac.uk to discuss possible projects. In the first round of selection we will require a cv, a research proposal of c.400 words, and a covering letter explaining your interest. These should reach Professor Brandist by 30 June 2013.
