Funded Doctoral Post at Helsinki on the Roman Republicanism

[We have the following announcement from Kaius Tuori, the PI on the projects EuroStorie and SpaceLaw.]

A four year fully funded doctoral student position is now available at my new research project at the University of Helsinki. The deadline is September 17th. I am primarily looking for a recent graduate from history, classics, legal history, Roman law and politics, who is interested in completing a doctoral degree as a part of an international research project.

The project  “Law, Governance and Space: Questioning the Foundations of the Republican Tradition (, funded by the ERC, examines the emergence of republican governance through the changes in the conceptions of public and private space from the Antiquity to the present. The theme of the doctoral project would cover the formation and reception of the ancient texts, ideals and legal tradition in their cultural contexts and their implications in the European historical tradition.

The official ad may be found here.  Instead of a full research proposal, I also welcome discursive papers on relevant themes and methods and the possibilities they would have for novel results.
