ASH’s vibrant PhD community is very much at the heart of its activities. ASH welcomes PhD researchers from all over the world and has over 25 PhD candidates employed by the faculty and 70 registered externally or self-funded PhD candidates. All form part of the much larger PhD community at the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam.

If you are interested in joining ASH either as an employed or self-funded candidate, please consult the website of the Faculty of Humanities by following the link above.

PhD candidates employed by the Faculty

Some PhD candidates are employed by the Faculty of Humanities for their PhD project. Sometimes the funding is made available by EU or NWO grants, sometimes the Faculty offers PhD positions. These are advertised on the UvA vacancies list and/or on the ASH website.

Externally or Self-funded PhD candidates

Self-funded PhD candidates bring their own funding either by having a job on the side, or a stipend, loan or grant from another source. These PhD candidates are entitled to a small research budget, library access, e-mail facilities, supervision, and they have access to the programmes offered by the research school to which they belong. We do not charge tuition, but the PhD candidate must ensure the support of two supervisors, at least one of them having the ius promovendi.
