There is an opportunity to apply for a university funded PhD studentship supervised by Dr. Jonathan Millett. There are five available within the School of Social Sciences, Politics, Geography and History at Loughborough University. I have put some very broad outlines for suitable projects below. If you are interested in undertaking a PhD in any of these areas please contact me and we can discuss an appropriate application. These studentships provide a stipend of £13,725 per annum plus home/EU tuition fees and are to start 1st October 2014. You should apply before 21st March 2014.
