PhD Studentship in English AHRC Funded

The English Department at the University of Hull invites high-quality proposals from applicants for an AHRC-funded PhD studentship tenable for three years from 1 October 2013. The award, which was made to a consortium bid from the Universities of Hull and Huddersfield, will be held at Hull, with optional access to facilities and research support at Huddersfield.
