The Department of Philosophy intends to offer up to four studentships for suitably qualified candidates accepted for full-time or part-time postgraduate taught or research degree programmes in the Department.
The awards, which are tenable from September or October 2007, are to the value of £11,000 for PhD candidates and £8,000 for MA students plus full fees.
PhD awards are for one year in the first instance, renewal being subject to satisfactory progress.
The Department operates a professional training and development scheme for postgraduates: as part of this scheme, successful applicants are often given the opportunity to undertake teaching, which is paid at an hourly rate.
With over 30 staff, the Department of Philosophy is one of the largest in the country.
It has an active Graduate School offering taught MAs in Health Care Ethics, History and Philosophy of Science, Metaphysics, Philosophy, Philosophy of Physics, Philosophy of Religion, and Science Communication, as well as research supervision in all major areas of Philosophy and History & Philosophy of Science.
The Department is particularly strong in Aesthetics, History of Analytic Philosophy, History and Philosophy of Science, Metaphysics, and Philosophy of Physics, and is especially interested in attracting applications from outstanding students in those areas.
