Apologies for cross-postings. I would like to draw your attention to the PhD funding opportunities below. There is likely to be at least one PhD studentship in Japanese Studies. (See link and click through to PDF giving more details.)

Peter Cave
Lecturer in Japanese Studies
University of Manchester

Japanese Studies at the University of Manchester in the UK, welcomes PhD applications in the humanities and social sciences, especially history, anthropology, medical history, and cultural studies.

Candidates can be UK/EU or International PhD students, studying on a full-time or part-time basis. Applicants must possess a first class honours degree or its international equivalent and hold a master's degree, ideally at distinction level.

The award will provide the payment of fees directly to the University and a maintenance bursary of £7,500 per annum (pro-rata for part-time students), which is paid in quarterly instalments (October/January/April/July) by bank transfer (by arrangement with the Student Services Centre). The closing date for receipt of the PhD Funding Application Form for the Research Scholar Award is Friday 15 April 2011. To ensure that you are holding an offer of a place by the closing date, you are advised to submit your online application for a place on the programme no later than Friday 1 April 2011.

This competition is open only to new PhD applicants, not currently registered PhD students. It is anticipated that decisions will be made in June 2011. Please note, only successful and reserve candidates will be contacted.
