AHRC-funded studentship “Development in Postcolonial West Africa”

Applications are now open for the first of three 2021-22 AHRC- funded Collaborative PhD studentships.

These fully-funded studentships offer a unique and exciting opportunity for students to focus on diverse histories and records while completing a flexible project which can be shaped by the student’s own interests and experiences. 

Development in Postcolonial West Africa: Building the Nation‘ is co-supervised by Juliette Desplat and Dan Gilfoyle at The National Archives, in collaboration with Iain Jackson and Patrick Zamarian at the University of Liverpool.

We want to encourage the widest range of potential students to apply for our CDP studentships and are committed to welcoming students from different backgrounds to apply. We particularly welcome applications from people from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic backgrounds as they are currently underrepresented at this level in this area.
