Founded in March 2015, BRIHC provides a dynamic and interdisciplinary focal point for the research conducted across the School of History and Cultures. Crossing traditional boundaries of chronology, geography, and methodology, it brings together scholars from the departments of History, Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology, and African Studies.

We invite applications for three Doctoral Scholarships beginning in September 2016.

This scholarship is open to candidates interested in pursuing postgraduate research in any of the disciplines and fields covered by the School of History and Cultures. Applicants should be able to demonstrate a track record of excellence in their field and be able to meet the normal entry requirements for the University of Birmingham’s PhD programmes. Successful applicants will be expected to engage beyond their specialisms and contribute to the creation of a uniquely lively and mutually enriching research environment across the School.

As well as pursuing their own research, successful candidates will be expected to contribute to the range of activities which make up the BRIHC’s dynamic research environment.
