  • 15 September 2020

We are pleased to offer funding for a three-year ‘Morris and Bessie Emanuel’ PhD. This is for an outstanding doctoral candidate wishing to pursue a research project in the field of Jewish studies. Highly motivated current and prospective graduates with an outstanding academic record and a strong interest in the relevant topics are encouraged to apply.

The Centre for German-Jewish Studies at the University of Sussex is one of the few research institutions devoted to the interdisciplinary study of the history and culture of Jews in German-speaking lands since the Enlightenment. Building on the Centre’s success over the past 25 years, we are in the process of developing an exciting new institute, which will expand our focus significantly. The vision of the Sussex Weidenfeld Institute is to become a leading intellectual hub for the interdisciplinary study and public discussion of the Jewish experience and how it relates to the key challenges of our time.

The successful PhD candidate will be joining a vibrant PhD community at the Institute and the School of History, Art History and Philosophy. The Institute’s graduate students are expected to participate in the research activities of the institute including lectures, international conferences and other events.
