PhD funding at UBC, Okanagan Campus


Recommended Posts

Email copied below. Sounds like a great opportunity!



The funding (minimum: $20k per year) is not attached to any particular research project, so it allows for a wide range of interests on the part of students.  The key is that the student must have a research interest that meshes broadly with my own research in: critical geographies, cultural studies, feminist geographies, cultural geographies, critical race geographies (particularly the study of white supremacy as a constituent part of everyday life in Canada and beyond).  There is also a strong likelihood of extra funding through internal UBC Scholarships (approx. $5k).


The successful candidate would become Assistant Editor for ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies during the period of their studies.

Interested students should contact me by email, and send me a half-page summary of their research interests, a copy of their current CV, an unofficial copy of their grades for their MA studies, and a writing sample (a published manuscript, a chapter of their MA thesis, etc.).


This funding opportunity just came about, so my apologies for the lateness of this announcement.  Our graduate program has a January 31, 2015 deadline for applicants wishing to start studies in September.  Further information can be found on the College of Graduate Studies website: http://gradstudies.ok.ubc.ca/welcome.html
