Applicants are sought for a fully-funded four-year Provost’s PhD Project Award to start a PhD at Trinity College Dublin in September 2021 or March 2022 on a subject related to the research project ‘Alexander the Great and the Language of Elite Power in the Hellenistic and Roman Worlds’, which is coordinated by Dr Shane Wallace (Trinity College Dublin). This is a unique opportunity for a doctoral student to join this interdisciplinary project and develop their own doctoral project in Hellenistic and/or Roman history at Trinity College Dublin. The successful applicant will be based in the School of Histories and Humanities and enrolled in the Structured PhD Programme.
The award comprises the student’s full PhD tuition fees at EU level and an annual stipend of €17,316. Trinity’s Provost’s PhD Project Awards are generously funded through alumni donations and Trinity's Commercial Revenue Unit. Potential applicants are invited to email the Principal Investigator, Dr Shane Wallace (email@example.com), to consult on their research proposal.
Fees are determined according to residency. To be classed as an EU fee paying student, the candidate must have spent 36 of the last 60 months residing (studying, working or in receipt of social welfare payments) in an EU country. Applicants from the UK for admission in the 2021/22 academic year are eligible so long as the applicant has lived in the UK for at least 36 months in the period between 2016 to 31 January 2020.
Applications for the award must include a personal statement with a research proposal (max. 5 pages), a curriculum vitae with educational history, transcripts of degree results, and two academic references. Prospective students will need to send these documents to Eilís Dunne at firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline on May 1st 2021. The successful candidate will then make a formal application to TCD via the my.tcd.ie portal and be issued with a formal offer in the same manner as other incoming PhD students.
