MA and postdoctoral funding in the UK - *now with added PhD funding!*

Recently seen:

For students hoping to take an MA in translation next year, there is an MA scholarship available from the Arts and Humanities Research Council for the MSc in Scientific, Technical and Medical Translation with Translation Technology at Imperial College London. Applicants must hold an offer of a place already, but it seems that there may still be time to apply for a place and the AHRC scholarship.

UPDATE, 2 June: There are also AHRC-funded PhD places at the University of Newcastle in translation and interpreting studies. Applications are especially welcome in the following areas of:

• Translating literature, especially poetry
• History of translation
• Interpreting
• Psycholinguistics of interpreting and translating
• Translation and culture; translation and ethics/ideology/power
• Translation products, processes and strategies
• Translator and interpreter training and assessment; reflective/autonomous learning

Supervision is available for Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Catalan, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Hungarian, Japanese, Quechua and Spanish (good to see some real language diversity). For details about the department visit http://www.ncl.ac.uk/sml/research/overview/tis/index.htm. Deadline: 27 June 2011.

For post-doctoral scholars, applications for postdoctoral bursaries of 3-9 months are also invited by the University of Edinburgh for candidates whose work falls within the scope of one of the Institute for Advanced Studies' current Research Themes and/or across disciplinary boundaries in the Humanities. Translation is included. The bursaries are tenable in the period 1 September 2011-31 August 2012. Awards will be up to a maximum of £10,000. Applicants must have been awarded a doctorate, normally within the last three years, and should not have held a permanent position at a university, or a previous Fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Studies. Those who have held temporary and/or short term appointments are eligible to apply.
