3. JOB OPPORTUNITIES & STUDENT POSITIONS
 
Located in Vancouver, British Columbia – the 3rd best city in the world in which to live (Global Liveability Ranking – 2013), – the Department of Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies at the University of British Columbia offers students the unique opportunity to conduct graduate level research in the classical texts, archaeology, and history of the entire Mediterranean world.

In our department, students can take a spectrum of courses from Roman and Greek archaeology, literature and history to Near Eastern languages (we offer Coptic and Akkadian as well as Hieroglyphs) to Christianity, Islam and Judaism. We are a student-centred department which seeks to enrich and nourish all of our MA and PhD students as a deeply held principle.

The department is looking for committed, self-motivated students and anticipates being able to offer up to four financial packages to well-qualified PhD applicants (with a completed MA) valued at approximately $25,000 per year for four years (contingent upon academic performance). Typical support for incoming MA students is around $20,000 per year for two years (contingent upon academic performance).

Our departmental website: http://cnrs.ubc.ca

Our graduate programs: http://cnrs.ubc.ca/for-graduates/graduate-programs/

We encourage students to contact our Director of Graduate Studies [ubccner-g-dgs@mail.ubc.ca] – or any of our faculty (all of whom are interested in supporting graduate students) with questions about our program, courses, and living in Vancouver.

The deadline for applications is December 15th for PhD programs and January 15th for MA programs.
