The Faculty of Arts at the University of Tasmania invites applications for two full-time PhD scholarships in History for 2013. Candidates should have a background and/or expertise in comparative, colonial, imperial, post-colonial or political history, or related disciplines.
We are seeking highly motivated applicants with demonstrable research skills, archival and scholarly writing experience. The candidates will work under the supervision of Dr. Penelope Edmonds, School of Humanities, and Professor Andrew Wells, Office of the DVC Research, respectively, and in collaboration with the discipline of History. The candidates will ideally take up the scholarships and commence work in early 2013 and will be based at the Hobart campus of the University of Tasmania.
Applicants must be eligible for admission to the University of Tasmania’s PhD program and are therefore required to hold a Bachelors Degree with Honours, a Masters Degree or equivalent academic and professional qualifications www.utas.edu.au/research/graduate-research. However, it is expected that the successful candidates will have at least a 1st class Honours degree in History or equivalent.
For further information contract Dr. Penelope Edmonds, Australian Research Council Future Fellow, on Penny.Edmonds@utas.edu.au or (03) 6226 1984.
Applications are invited by expression of interest to Prof. Andrew Wells via email at Andrew.Wells@utas.edu.au by 7 December 2012. Applications should include a statement (maximum three pages) outlining qualifications and capacity for undertaking a research project in this general area; a one-page project outline; the names of two academic referees; and a current curriculum vitae.
