The Department of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Exeter is offering a doctoral studentship, generously funded by the A.G. Leventis Foundation. This award is open to UK/EU and International students and will provide a significant contribution towards tuition fees and maintenance for three years, starting in September 2015.
The successful candidate may also be asked to contribute up to 150 hours per annum to departmental teaching (although since this figure includes preparation and marking time, the actual number of hours of teaching will be substantially lower). The total value of the award and teaching remuneration will be c. £20,000 per annum. This studentship is available to fund research on any aspect of Greek or Roman antiquity.
