Yesu Persaud Centre for Caribbean Studies
University of Warwick
Applications are invited for a three-and-half-year (42 months) funded PhD studentship at the University of Warwick starting in autumn 2018. The successful candidate will be based at the university’s Yesu Persaud Centre for Caribbean Studies (YPCCS) and the research can be into any aspect of the history, literature, culture or societies of the Caribbean.
The studentship is tenable for up to three-and-a-half years (full-time), subject to academic progression.
It offers an annual stipend at the standard RCUK rate (currently £14,553) and covers full tuition fees at the Home/EU rate for 3 years. International candidates are encouraged to apply but would need to self-fund the difference between the fee rates.
The studentship is funded jointly through the generous endowment provided by Yesu Persaud and the Warwick Collaborative Postgraduate Research Scholarships (WCPRS) scheme.
Applicants should be holders of a good first degree (at least 2:1 or equivalent). A relevant Masters degree, completed or close to completion, is also expected in an area relevant to the proposed area of doctoral research.
Before submitting an application, candidates should identify and make contact with a potential supervisor from among the Centre’s academic staff.
Please send informal inquiries about the studentship to the acting director of the YPCCS, Dr Michael Niblett, at M.Niblett@warwick.ac.uk
