The Board of Electors to the Grinfield Lecturership intends, if a suitably qualified candidate can be found, to offer a one-year studentship funded by the Grinfield Trust, for an M.St. or M.Phil. with a proposed dissertation on any aspect of the Greek Septuagint translation of the Hebrew Bible. The studentship will be tenable from Michaelmas Term 2022, and is expected to cover annual fees up to a total of £12,000. The successful candidate will have a good first degree in a relevant subject (undergraduate or graduate), or will have completed all the elements of such a degree by September 2022. He or she will be expected to make, or to have made, an application for the M.St. or M.Phil. in either the Faculty of Theology and Religion or the Faculty of Oriental Studies by Friday, 7 January 2022, and to have met the usual criteria for acceptance.
The successful candidate will pay the usual fees to college and university. The award is non-renewable, and will be terminated if matriculation for the M.St. or M.Phil. course is suspended for any reason.
The awarding Board of Electors will have access to candidates’ application materials submitted to either of the two Faculties and therefore will not require additional documentation. Applicants should, however, ask their three referees to speak directly to their qualification for this studentship in the references submitted in support of the application for the M.St. or M.Phil.
