Three start-up grants for doctorates in literary studies

The Doctoral Program in Literary Studies of the University of Basel calls for applications for three one-year start-up grants of CHF 30,000 each.

 
The Doctoral Program in Literary Studies of the University of Basel calls for applications for three one-year start-up grants of CHF 30,000 each (duration: 1 April 2019 – 31 March 2020, in two installments, with evaluation), starting 1 April 2019. These grants are designed to make a contribution to the successful applicants’ cost of living while they develop a PhD project in the area of literary studies. The aim of the start-up grants is to enable young researchers to develop a competitive application for a research grant or research project position and submit it to a funding institution by the end of the first six months. If successful, researchers will continue to work on their PhD thesis supported by third-party funds by the end of the start-up period.

Deadline for applications: 9 December 2018. Find out more about this opportunity over at the Doctoral Program in Literary Studies.
