The UCL SSEES-led Centre for East European Language-Based Area Studies (CEELBAS) has been awarded a major grant from the Arts & Humanities Research Council to develop a new national Centre for Doctoral Training in Russian, Slavonic and East European languages and culture.

A partnership of UCL and the Universities of Cambridge, Manchester and Oxford, the Centre will be awarding a number of full Postgraduate Research Studentships each year, starting in 2014, as well as running a specialist postgraduate training programme with the support of external partners that include the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, the British Library, Pushkin House and openDemocracy. This will include support for internships, advanced language training and international research collaboration.

Full details of the application schedule and guidelines for the first round of CEELBAS Postgraduate Research Studentships (for those wishing to commence research in October 2014) will be published on the CEELBAS website in the near future. For all enquiries, please e-mail ceelbas@ssees.ucl.ac.uk
