Two fully funded PhD positions in East and South-East Asian Studies

Lund University, Sweden
Deadline: 1st Mar 2020

The Centre will start its Ph.D. programme in September 2020. The programme is four-year long (240 credits) and combines courses (60 credits) with a thesis (180 credits). East and South-East Asian Studies is an interdisciplinary subject that focuses on present-day socio-political issues and developments and can include a range of topics concerning phenomena and processes in the region as a whole as well as in individual countries. The subject integrates theoretical and methodological perspectives from area studies with different humanities and social sciences disciplines.

Every doctoral student is assigned a principal supervisor, who is a docent and employed at Lund University, and an assistant supervisor, who is to hold a Ph.D. The organisation of the individual doctoral student’s studies is detailed in an individual study plan drawn up by the doctoral students and the supervisors at the start of the programme. This individual study plan is to be revised on a continual basis and at least once a year.
