The Department of History at the University of Nottingham invites applications from suitably qualified candidates for a full-time studentship in Spaces of Occupation in Twentieth-Century Asia. The studentship is offered through the ERC-funded project, Cultures of Occupation in Twentieth-Century Asia (COTCA), led by Dr. Jeremy E Taylor. The successful candidate will develop a ‘spatial history’ study of foreign occupation in twentieth-century East and/or Southeast Asia.

This studentship fits within COTCA’s Stream 3: ‘Spaces of Occupation in Twentieth-Century Asia’. The precise choice of research topic will lie with the student in consultation with supervisors, but it must employ a ‘spatial history’ approach to analyze the impact of foreign occupation on cultural expression in 20th-century East and/or Southeast Asia. It might be a specific study of occupation in an individual society, or it might be comparative or regional in focus.

English Language Requirements: Applicants whose first language is not English are usually required to provide evidence of proficiency in English at the higher level required by the University.
