Description:

The University has a three-year PhD Scholarship available for a research
project relating to Irish language policy, sociolinguistics or applied
linguistics, beginning in September 2017.

>From 2008 onwards the University of Edinburgh has received a grant to promote
the teaching of Irish from the Irish Government’s Department of Arts, Heritage
and the Gaeltacht. This award will now support a PhD Scholarship beginning in
January 2017.

The scholarship will cover the UK/EU rate of tuition fees. Any international
student who applies for the scholarship must be able to demonstrate the
availability of funds to meet the full overseas tuition fee. Funding will
extend for three years.

The award holder will also receive a stipend in line with the rate paid by the
UK Research Councils. In 2017-18 the stipend is expected to be £14,510.

The award holder will be required to teach Irish language classes at different
levels, including some classes in the evening and occasional classes at the
weekend. The amount of teaching required would not normally exceed 6 hours per
week or 125 hours per year. This teaching forms part of the terms of the award
and will not attract additional payment.

Applications are welcomed on any topic relating to Irish language policy,
sociolinguistics or applied linguistics. Applicants should be fluent speakers
of Irish and should hold relevant undergraduate and Master’s level
qualifications. Experience in teaching Irish would be an advantage, as would
some knowledge of Scottish Gaelic.
