Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller Scholarship (Fees and Stipend)
for Doctoral Study at the IMLR, London.


Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates who wish to focus their research on German-speaking exile, preferably in the UK. Topics may include literature, politics, history, sociology, migration, or the arts. Applications for research based on the archival holdings of the Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies at the IMLR (e.g. the papers of the Anglo-Austrian Society or those of the writer and broadcaster Robert Lucas) would be particularly welcome. A working knowledge of German would be advantageous.

The award, which is funded by the Martin Miller and Hannah Norbert-Miller Trust, provides the successful applicant with a fee waiver equivalent to up to 100% of the full-time or part-time Home/EU tuition fee, and is tenable for three years (full-time) or five years (part-time), beginning in October 2016, plus maintenance of £15,000 (full-time) or £7,500 (part-time). The successful candidate, who will be expected to register at the Institute of Modern Languages Research (University of London) for the MPhil/PhD degree of the University of London, will be able to draw on the expertise of the Institute’s Research Centre for German and Austrian Exile Studies.

Applicants, who would normally have an MA degree or equivalent, should apply by 5pm on 30 June. Applications should be made on the School of Advanced Study application form (please note earlier submission date) and copied to jane.lewin@sas.ac.uk. Interviews are expected to be held in week beginning 18 July 2016.
