    AHRC Midlands4Cities funding for UK/EU students

    The AHRC-funded Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M4C) brings together eight leading universities across the Midlands to support the professional and personal development of the next generation of arts and humanities doctoral researchers. M4C is a collaboration between the University of Nottingham, Birmingham City University, University of Birmingham, Coventry University, University of Leicester, De Montfort University, Nottingham Trent University and the University of Warwick.

    M4C is awarding up to 80 doctoral studentships for UK/EU applicants for 2019 through an open competition and 11 Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDA) through a linked competition with a range of partner organizations in the cultural, creative and heritage sector.

    The Department of History at the University of Nottingham invites applications from students whose research interests connect with our expertise in Russian and/or Soviet history from the nineteenth century to the end of the twentieth century.
    Some prior knowledge of the Russian language is necessary, but it may be possible to apply for extended funding to strengthen language skills.

    Successful candidates will join a strong team of existing PhD students in Russian history in the Department, working under the supervision of Professor Sarah Badcock and Dr Nick Baron.

    For details of current PhD projects in Russian/Soviet history in the Department, and information on our specialist research areas, please see the ‘Research’ tabs on our web-pages.

    We can also offer cross-institutional co-supervision in collaboration with Dr. Claire Shaw, Department of History, University of Warwick, if appropriate for the proposed project.

    If you are interested in applying, please contact Professor Badcock ( and Dr Baron ( as soon as possible, sending your CV, a one-page note on your preparation and motivation to conduct research to PhD level in history, and a 1-2 page outline of your proposed research topic. We can advise on your eligibility and the fit of your proposed research with our interests and expertise. We cannot accept any expressions of interest after 7 December 2018.

    The deadline for M4C funding applications is 14 January 2019 (noon), by which time students must have applied for a place to study at the University of Nottingham and have ensured that two academic references are submitted using the Midlands4Cities online reference form.

    An application-writing workshop will be held on 10 November 2018 in the Newton Building, Nottingham Trent University, Nottingham, at 13.30-16.00.
