PhD Studentships in Mediaeval History and Law

The project ‘Civil Law, Common Law, Customary Law: Consonance, Divergence and Transformation in Western Europe from the late eleventh to the thirteenth centuries’ invites applications for two PhD studentships, for applicants to start PhDs at the University of St Andrews in September 2018. Each student will examine the development of land law within a chosen region of western Europe in the period 1050-1250. Preference may be given to candidates working on France, Catalonia, or Italy, but applications to work on other areas will be considered too.

For further information on the project, see here. 

Applicants should have completed a taught-postgraduate degree (or equivalent) by September 2018. The studentships are fully funded covering stipend and fees for UK and EU resident students. Non-EU students can also be considered for further University scholarships for international fees.

Applicants should apply for a PhD place via the University of St Andrews standard application process (see here for more information). In addition, they should submit a research outline of a maximum of 500 words directly to Professor John Hudson by email to jghh@st-andrews.ac.uk.

The deadline for applications is 15 January 2018.
