Apply: PhD Scholarship – Mediterranean History (Haifa)

The Haifa Center for Mediterranean History (HCMH) is offering a three-year PhD scholarship for a project relating to the pre-modern history of the Mediterranean, starting in October 2017.

HCMH, which began its work this year, promotes the historical study of the pre-modern Mediterranean at the university of Haifa, and aims to connect it to the vibrant international networks of Mediterranean research. Prospective PhD projects will engage meaningfully in a relevant Mediterranean theme, and show relevance to the current historiographical discourse. They will be supervised by a Haifa researcher from one of the following departments: History, Maritime Civilizations, Archaeology, Art History, Middle Eastern History, Israel Studies, and Jewish History. Co-advisors from other departments and universities are welcome.

The scholarships will be offered to students who will be admitted to doctoral studies at the University of Haifa. Applicants should supply a personal statement, BA and MA transcripts and diplomas, a writing sample (up to 8,000 words – a chapter from the MA thesis is possible), and two letters of recommendation – one from the designated PhD supervisor, and another from a senior researcher familiar with the candidate. In addition, applicants should supply an official letter indicating that they had been accepted to the PhD program of one of the above-mentioned departments, accompanied by the approved statement of intent for the dissertation. Successful candidates will be expected to apply also for the institutional PhD scholarship of distinction. The stipend will ultimately amount to 15,000$ annually.

Please note that this is a competitive scholarship. The HCMH academic committee will evaluate all applications and inform the candidates of their decision. The awarding of the scholarship is pending on academic and administrative good standing, according to the regulations of the Graduate Studies Authority.

Application materials in PDF should be emailed to Ms. Hilla Heinemann, HCMH administrator, at HCMH@univ.haifa.ac.il by 1 July 2017. Recommenders should mail their letters directly to HCMH.
