PhD Studentship on the Early Greek Alphabet

The Faculty of Classics, University of Cambridge, is pleased to announce a fixed term fully-funded PhD Studentship on the European Research Council funded Project Contexts of and Relations between Early Writing Systems (CREWS).  The studentship will run from 1st October 2016 to 30th September 2019.

The PhD student will prepare a doctoral dissertation concentrating on the early development of the Greek alphabet, working with the increasing corpus of alphabetic inscriptions dating from the 8th to early 6th centuries BCE. Dr Philippa Steele will act as PhD supervisor with Professor James Clackson as co-supervisor.

Due to restrictions of funding, the studentship is only available to UK/EU citizens. The award will pay full fees and maintenance for the period of the scholarship (this includes the maintenance costs of a successful applicant who is a UK/EU citizen). The successful applicant is expected to have Masters’ level experience in ancient Greek epigraphy and/or linguistics (by October 2016), and a proven record of outstanding achievement at both undergraduate and Master’s level.

The deadline for applications is 23rd May 2016. Shortlisting and interviews will take place between late May and mid-June.
