IAPS PhD Studentship in History

IAPS is co-funding a PhD studentship in conjunction with the Department of History, within the School of Humanities at the University of Nottingham.  We invite applications for a PhD Studentship in one or more of the following areas:  the history of late nineteenth- and twentieth-century East Asia (especially Japan), and the history of migration, labour, and cultural exchange between Britain and Asia (including India, China, Japan, and South East Asia) in the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries.


  • Must be starting PhD studies in September 2014
  • Full-time only
  • Can  have a fee status of either UK, EU or OS
  • Must hold an offer of a place to study in the Department of History, University of Nottingham

The award pays the equivalent of UK/EU tuition fees and a maintenance grant of approximately £13,863 each year for a maximum of three years of full-time doctoral study (subject to evidence of satisfactory progress). The stipend for International students will be lower (£4,400 approx.) due to the higher tuition fee.

The deadline for funding applications is 28 February 2014 and funding applications should be submitted to 

By the time the funding application is submitted students must have also applied for a place to study and the deadline for this is also 28 February 2014. This application is submitted via the University of Nottingham online system at

Please note: references only need to be submitted when you apply for a place to study – you do not need to submit them again when applying for studentship funding.

For this reason, please ensure that your referees are aware that what they write will also be used to assess your funding application and that they are aware of the deadline for submission of references.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to: Dr Rob Lutton, tel: +44(0)115 9515935 or
