Applications are sought for a fully funded PhD studentship (fees at UK/EU rates + stipend) to be held at the University of Leicester from October 2009 under the supervision of Dr Joanna Story, Dr Simon James and Professor Mark Jobling. The studentship is part of a new, multi-disciplinary project, called ‘Roots of the British’, and is funded by the College of Arts, Humanities and Law and by the Department of Genetics at the University of Leicester.

About the project

The project aims to interrogate the diverse evidence for the migration and/or continuity of human populations in the British Isles in the distant past, particularly in the first millennium BC (‘Celts’ and their migrations) and in the first millennium AD (Anglo-Saxon and Viking migration and ‘Celtic’ dis/continuity).

This PhD studentship will be cross-disciplinary in character; it will draw on the ‘original’ narratives of migration in the first millennia BC/AD and the ways in which these have informed ‘modern’ identities (local, regional and national), popular histories and academic research agendas, and will examine the (mis)use of genetics in recent popular histories. A key source will be datasets collected for research into the genetics of ancestry.

One particular activity that transformed young people’s lives was through the formation of an organisation by the name of Youth Focus International (YOFI) whose aim was meeting the spiritual, socio-economic and physical needs for the youth through special programmes and activities.

    If given the needed financial support to pursue the Doctorate course in your esteemed University, I hope to change the present socio-economic status of the citizens of my country Swaziland through academic excellence and commitment to just courses that will make a difference.
