PhD Studentship in French at University College Cork (including applications with Translation Studies)

The Department of French at University College Cork welcomes applications for a new studentship open to students wishing to pursue doctoral research in any area of French and Francophone studies. The studentship will be awarded in the form of a fee-waiver, and will be tenable from the date of first registration for a maximum of three years full-time.

The scholarship is open to EU and non-EU students. However, the funding will only cover the EU fee, so a successful non-EU applicant would be responsible for the balance.

The successful applicant will be required to apply for supplementary funding through the Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postgraduate Scholarship Programme and through UCC's Research Excellence Scholarships (PhD) programme.

UCC's French Department has research expertise across French and Francophone studies, including:

Colonial and post-colonial history of the Francophone world.

Colonial and post-colonial Francophone literature.

Contemporary French theatre, film and poetry.

French political thought since 1789.

Translation studies.

French language and linguistics.

Details of individual staff research profiles can be found here:

As part of the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, we can offer co-supervision in interdisciplinary and cross-cultural projects in areas including conflict studies; memory studies; translation studies; creative practice; comparative literature and culture; film, photography and visual culture; and critical theory. The School’s Centre for Advanced Studies in Languages and Cultures (CASiLaC) supports interdisciplinary co-operation and provides a framework for researchers to collaborate across departmental divides.

Our doctoral students are also supported in their graduate education, research training and career development by the Graduate School of the College of Arts, Celtic Studies and Social Sciences.

UCC Department of French will run an internal selection process to decide the allocation of this studentship. All applicants should read the Terms and Conditionsprior to application.

Deadline for submission of completed applications: Friday, 26 April 2019.

Informal enquiries about projects can be made in the first instance to the Head of Department, Dr Patrick Crowley (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
