Subject: Graduate fellowships (PhD or MA) Comparative politics of the Euro Crisis – Department of Political Science, University of Victoria, BC Canada



Dear Colleagues,
 
Graduate fellowships (PhD or MA) Comparative politics of the Euro Crisis – Department of Political Science, University of Victoria, BC Canada 
 
One or two graduate fellowships (one at the MA level and one at the Ph.D. level) are available in the Department of Political Science at the University of Victoria (Victoria BC) to work on a project headed by Dr. Amy Verdun examining the politics of the euro crisis; specifically, the creation of new EU institutions related to addressing the euro crisis and their impact on EU member states. It is intended that students will deal with a portion of the member state cases in the study under the supervision of Dr. Verdun also with support from a Postdoctoral fellow, Dr Valerie D’Erman, who is already working on this project. This investigation will form the  basis for their MA/ Ph.D. theses. Successful PhD applicants will be funded for at least one research trip to Europe during the period of study. In coming to the Department of Political Science at UVIC, doctoral students will be joining a vibrant PhD program based in a Department that values excellence in research and teaching. In addition to regular teaching assistant training and support, students will have other opportunities for professional development, such as research training, support for conference presentations and workshop participation, and field research support. Students also have many opportunities to participate in the activities of the UVic¹s European Union (EU) Centre of Excellence http://www.uvic.ca/interdisciplinary/europe/euce/ and the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence with its three Jean Monnet Chairs. Applicants must apply for the Ph.D. or MA program in the Department of Political Science and indicate their interest in working on this project. Informal enquiries should be made to Dr. Amy Verdun: averdun@uvic.ca
 
The Department of Political Science at the UVic, has several newly created, project-funded Ph.D fellowship and MA opportunities for doctoral students beginning in September 2017 in addition to the regular PhD fellowships offered to the usual fellowships offered to PhD candidates. Up to ten graduate positions in subject areas related to Comparative Politics are available  (http://www.uvic.ca/socialsciences/politicalscience/graduate/apply/index.php). PhD students will be funded through a combination of fellowships, research assistance, and teaching assistance, to a value of $20,000/year for four years. A fifth year of funding is possible and will be contingent on performance. In coming to the Department of Political Science at UVic, doctoral students will be joining a vibrant PhD program based in a Department that values excellence in research and teaching. In addition to regular teaching assistant training and support, students will have other opportunities for professional development, such as research training, support for conference presentations and workshop participation, and field research support. Students are strongly encouraged to contact the relevant supervisors in advance of the application deadline. The deadline for full consideration for the program is 15 December 2016 for international students and 15 January 2017 for applicants by Canadians and Canadian Permanent Residents.
