The North of England Consortium for Arts and Humanities is pleased to announce one fully-funded studentship in English, tenable for three years from 1 January 2016.

The studentship, which will be based at Sheffield Hallam University with co-supervision at the most appropriate institution elsewhere in the Consortium, is for three years, subject to satisfactory progress, and is available to UK/EU students. Tuition fees are included, and also a stipend at RCUK rates, currently £14,057 per annum.

Our research groups are in Renaissance Literature, Writing, Gender and Culture 1700-1900, Modern and Contemporary literature, Creative Writing, Language and Linguistics, and Digital Humanities. We have a strong research record: 52% of our research was rated world-leading or internationally excellent in REF 2014 and we have an active and inclusive research culture involving staff, PhD and MA students.

As a minimum, applicants should possess a 1st or 2.1 Honours degree, but preference may be given to those with a distinction at M level.
