The Scholarship must be taken up from 1 July.
The successful candidate will receive R45,000 per annum, which is sufficient to cover university and living expenses in South Africa, and this can be supplemented by employment within the School of Politics.
This scholarship is part of a project to create a Centre of Excellence in Political Philosophy at UKZN.
Applications are therefore also encouraged from students who have an interest in grounding their theoretical analysis in existing political contexts and problems.
Candidates should email their curriculum vitae (CV) and a one-page summary of their proposed doctoral research to Dr Hamilton (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 14 June.
They should also ask three referees to send assessments of their work and suitability for doctoral study by the same deadline.
They can also post their applications to:
Dr Lawrence Hamilton,
School of Politics, Howard College Campus,
University of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban, 4041,
making sure they arrive by the deadline.
The successful candidate will be informed by the 20 June at the latest.
