King’s Colonial Past: History Research PhD Studentships 2022/23


PhD Funding Application, deadline – 31 March 2022

The studentships for a History Research PhD will commence from October 2022. The Faculty comprises some 350 active researchers and over 650 postgraduate research students, one of the largest communities of postgraduate research students in the country. In order to research and write the history of King’s colonial past, the Faculty has been developing innovative undergraduate teaching, as well as related research activities. However, many aspects of the College’s colonial history remain unexplored and so further funds have been allocated to fund two PhD studentships to undertake more research in the area. It is expected that each doctoral project will engage with King’s Archives to research the lives of alumni, past staff, and College records, but also use related materials in other archival and library collections, including potentially overseas. We encourage applications from any candidate with appropriate qualifications and normally this will mean a Bachelor’s degree with 1st class or 2:1 honours degree and a Master of Arts with Distinction or Merit in a related subject. In exceptional cases, particularly strong applicants who do not hold a Distinction or Merit in their Master’s degree may be considered.
