Tel Aviv University
Deadline: July 15, 2019
The Dan Department of Communication at Tel Aviv University is now inviting applications for a PhD scholarship, starting from Academic year 2019-20.
Founded in 1994, the Dan Department of Communication at TAU is home to more than 400 students at B.A., M.A. and PhD levels. It teaches both practice and theory, and is one of the top departments of communication in Israel.
The scholarship includes a tax-free yearly stipend of 56,600 Israeli Shekels (approximately 15,300 USD) for the first year, and 66,540 NIS (approximately 18,000 USD), for the next three years, on the basis of a report on the advancement of research by the supervisor(s). The PhD will be supervised at the Department of Communication. The Department will support the student with funding for conference travels and will offer opportunities to participate some of the department activities conducted in English (special conferences and presentations, participation in seminars or classes).
The candidates are also invited to check the department website and the profile of each faculty member before sending their applications. The following research areas are especially relevant: media history, media and memory, language and media/communication, political communication, news literacy, transnational communications, privacy and self-disclosure, health communication and social marketing.
Applications should consist of an 800 words research proposal, a sample of academic writing (a recent seminar paper would be most appropriate), a CV detailing academic qualifications and professional experience to date, and the details of at least two potential recommenders. A fieldwork to be done in Israel is an asset but not a necessity.
Applications to: Ms. Sabrina Ungar, Department of Communications (email@example.com)
General inquiries to: Prof. Jerome Bourdon, Chair of PhD Studies (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Closing date: July 15, 2019.
