The University of Portsmouth is inviting applications for our fully funded PhD bursaries for UK/EU students. Successful candidates will be offered a fully funded PhD bursary studentship to start in October 2016, on a full time basis for up to four years. A limited number of these highly competitive PhD studentships are available as part of the Investing in Future Research and Impact scheme. We welcome applications linked to our areas of international and world-class research. The University’s Centre for Studies in Literature (CSL) has expertise in nineteenth-century, twentieth- and twenty-first century American literature and culture. Details of the research undertaken within CSL and information about how to apply are here:
