The Northern UK Jewish Studies Partnership 2017
Manchester University’s Centre for Jewish Studies holds annual postgraduate and post-doctoral research training events for students and post-docs based anywhere in the UK in collaboration with the Northern UK Jewish Studies Partnership institutions. This year the event will take place on 4, 5 and 6 July 2017 at Manchester University.
This application form is for PhD students and post-doctoral researchers who wish to take part. The training event will:
• be inter-disciplinary, with generic and some more specialized research training in certain Jewish Studies fields
• focus on trends, methods and types of evidence
• allow post-docs to participate alongside PhD students, but also to contribute to leading a session if required
Participants are eligible for varying forms of financial assistance. If you are from a Northern Partnership institution, you are eligible for at least partial reimbursement of expenses for travel (upto £150) and accommodation (upto £75 per night). If you are from elsewhere in the UK or from abroad, you may still be eligible for a partial travel/accommodation bursary. If you wish to be considered, please indicate so on the registration form.
This year's event will be similar, but will have mostly different sessions. This year's event has been partly shaped by feedback from the 2016 participants. We will have a mix of sessions on "career development" events (e.g. post-doc applications, REF 2021, post-doctoral career paths) and "Current Trends in X" (X = a field of Jewish Studies). Sessions will be led by academics in the various fields from the Northern Partnership Universities and elsewhere. There will be plenty of time for networking and times will be set aside for one-to-one meetings with senior academics.
Please submit this form by 1 June 2017. In case of questions please contact the Partnership's administrator Ms Laura Mitchell at Laura.Mitchell@manchester.ac.uk
