Funding your studies

There is a wide range of financial support available for students at the University of Nottingham. The support available depends on many factors such as:

  • subject
  • award level
  • where you live

Many of the financial support options require you to hold an offer of a place to study at Nottingham before you can make an application for funding.

It is therefore highly recommended that you begin the application process in time to meet the funding deadlines.

Classics and Archaeology

3-year PhD Scholarship in the Department of Classics and Archaeology

Applications for the 2021-22 academic year are open.

The deadline for applications is Monday 1 November 2021, 12.00 noon

The Department of Classics and Archaeology at University of Nottingham is pleased to invite applications for a 3-year PhD scholarship (36 months, full-time) to start in February 2022, or shortly thereafter, generously funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

The scholarship is part of the Leverhulme Research Project ‘Divine Saving in Greek and Chinese Polytheism’, directed by Dr Theodora Jim.

PhD project

The last few decades have seen a multiplicity of new paradigms in the study of Greek religion. This PhD project will undertake a specialised study, within the broader field of Greek polytheism, of a particular instance of the neglected phenomenon of ‘special relationships’ between pairs of gods: that of Zeus and Athena.

The PhD thesis will analyse the relationship between Zeus and Athena in myth and cult, and reconstruct in detail the history and development of their joint cults from the Archaic period to the Hellenistic. As they appeared particularly often in military and maritime contexts as a pair, the project will identify the epithets under which they were jointly worshipped (eg, Zeus Soter and Athena Soteira, Zeus Polieus and Athena Polias, Zeus Boulaios and Athena Boulaia), and locate this pairing of gods within the context of military and maritime religion and the plurality of gods worshipped by those at sea and on campaign.

Other potential areas of enquiry include: the spheres of competence of Zeus and Athena; how the character of their joint cults replicated, overlapped with, or differed from their own separate cults; how their power changed (if at all) over time and across the Mediterranean.

Funding

The scholarship comprises UK tuition fees and an annual maintenance allowance of ₤15,609 for 3 years (full-time). EU and international students are eligible to apply but must make up for the difference in costs.

Application process

Step 1: Applicants should complete the application form, and provide:

(i) a personal statement indicating their potential to work on this topic,

(ii) a full curriculum vitae,

(iii) official transcripts,

(iv) details of 2 academic referees and,

(v) where English is not the first language, proof of English language proficiency.

All documents should be submitted to SS-PGR-Arts@nottingham.ac.uk by Monday 1 November 2021, 12.00 noon.

Applicants should also ensure that referees submit their references to this email address by the same deadline.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 23 November 2021.

Step 2: Separately from the Scholarship application, applicants should apply to the University of Nottingham for a place in PhD Classics by the same deadline of 1 November here: 

Further information

The Department of Classics and Archaeology at the University of Nottingham, UK, has a long tradition of research excellence in ancient Greek history and religion. Students will benefit from the Department’s dynamic research environment, vibrant postgraduate community, and regular research events including the weekly Departmental Research Workshop, the Work-in-Progress Graduate Seminars, and the Midlands Classics Colloquium.
