    The UCD School of History invites applications for a generous four-year, fully-funded PhD scholarship. The award includes a stipend of €15,000 per annum, full fee waiver (EU or non-EU), and a travel allowance for archival research.The successful applicant will contribute to the project ‘Resource regimes in late imperial and early Soviet Russia’, exploring the social, political and environmental history of the Russian empire at a critical juncture in the history of the modern Russian state. Examining the dynamic relationship between imperial/Soviet rule and material resources, the applicant will focus on three key areas:

    • The ways in which state and society exploited resources at the edges of empire, and the various legal, economic, intellectual and material justifications for doing so.
    • The environmental, social and political impact of resource exploitation, on local and imperial scales.
    • Issues of resource access, security and related forms of violence during the First World War, the Russian Civil War, and the early 1920s.

    There is considerable scope to develop this project according to the expertise and interests of the applicant. Candidates are encouraged to focus either on a specific region of the empire, or a type of resource (or both), the latter including, but not limited to energy resources, fossil fuels, mineral reserves, commodities, and over-land trade routes.For more details of the project, and on how to apply, please visit:
