Research training event in Jewish Studies for PhDs and Early Career Researchers, University of Manchester, 10-11 June 2021 (online via zoom)
The Centre for Jewish Studies at Manchester University is pleased to announce the fifth doctoral and early career research training event of the Northern UK and Dublin Jewish Studies Partnership. Advanced PhD students and post-doctoral researchers from Partnership institutions and other UK Universities can apply to participate in a range of online sessions taking place on 10-11 June 2021. Applications from outside the UK will be considered. The event will share experiences of being interviewed for lectureships, discuss applying for post-doctoral research positions (including a practical application exercise), share recent experiences of University teaching of Jewish Studies during and after Covid-19, and of creating and running a research network (using the Jewish-Muslim Research Network as an example). There will be plenaries on defining anti-Semitism and academic freedom, and on what should be the priorities of Jewish Studies research funders in the future. Participants will be able to meet experienced staff for informal, one-to-one advice on any aspect of their research, career planning or publication priorities.

Registration closes when places are filled up or by 20 May 2021 at the latest.
