Dublin City University – The School of Applied Language and Intercultural Studies (SALIS)
SALIS is a multilingual, multicultural research-focused school with specialisms in Modern Languages, Applied Linguistics, Translation Studies, and Cultural and Intercultural Studies. Our research frequently crosses disciplinary and linguistic boundaries, and our scholarship is increasingly concerned with digital technologies, literacies, and practices in a variety of professional, academic and social contexts.
As part of our commitment to ensuring excellence in doctoral-level research, SALIS is pleased to offer a number of scholarships for full-time PhD students commencing at the end of September, 2017. Successful candidates will be paid a stipend of €16,000 per annum for up to four years, subject to satisfactory annual progression. Registration fees will also be paid.
