PhD Studentship in English: James Joyce

1st July 2008, 17:00 to 17:00

Applications are invited for a PhD Studentship based in the Department of English Studies at Durham University. Starting in October 2008, the position will fund three years full-time study (at c.£11,000 p.a. plus fees).

This position is funded by the Leverhulme Trust as part of the research project "Consumer Culture, Advertising and Literature in Ireland, 1848-1921", a collaborative research project between the Universities of Sunderland and Durham led by Professor John Strachan. The Durham Studentship will be supervised by Dr John Nash.

The successful applicant will conduct research into the work of James Joyce as it relates to the broad terms of the research project.
