The Graduate School at Arts, Faculty of Arts, Aarhus University, Denmark, in collaboration with the European Research Council, invites applications for up to three fully-funded PhD fellowships in Classical Influences and Irish Culture provided the necessary funding is available. These PhD fellowships are available as of 1 September 2020 for a period of up to three years. The candidates who are awarded one the fellowships must commence their PhD degree programme on 1 September 2020. The PhD fellowships will be financed by the two parties.
The PhD fellowships are advertised under the auspices of the ERC project Classical Influences and Irish Culture. This research project aims to investigate the sustained diachronic relevance of material from classical Greece and Rome to the formation of Irish identities from the medieval period to the present day. The project is structured around nine central themes: Language; Land; Migration; Troy; Satire; Neoplatonism; Female Voices; Material Culture; Global Influence. It is expected that successful applicants will produce research related to one or more of these themes. Candidates are encouraged to consult https://clic.au.dk/ to gain further insights into how their existing research may intersect with the project themes.
The PhD fellowship package includes:
Successful applicants will be registered in Aarhus University’s PhD Programme for Art, Literature, and Cultural Studies at the School of Communication and Culture.
The PhD positions are advertised as ‘5+3’. This assumes the completion of a three-year Bachelor’s followed by a two year Master’s (5 years) in relevant fields, leading to a three year PhD. Candidates with a four-year Bachelor’s are eligible to apply but only if they have also completed a two-year Master’s or can provide evidence of an equivalent qualification.
No knowledge of Danish is required for these positions, and Denmark can be experienced as an Anglophone country in terms of daily life.
