About Graduate Teaching Assistantships

Graduate Teaching Assistantships allow you to fund your PhD study through part-time teaching work with the University. The Graduate Teaching Assistant is responsible to the Head of School and is expected to undertake teaching-related duties as required within the School, not normally exceeding the equivalent of six/seven contact hours per week during term time. The Graduate Teaching Assistant is also expected to contribute to School research initiatives.

We welcome applications that are compatible with the research interests of our staff. For more information on the research areas in which we offer PhD supervision, please see the School of Historical Studies

Applications from candidates with an interest in Heritage would be welcome. In the first instance, prior to making an application, candidates should contact the School to discuss their planned PhD thesis.
