Apply for a full-time PhD studentship starting in October 2012, for 3 years (subject to annual monitoring).

Proposals are invited for research in any area of critical theory, continental thought or modern European philosophy, relating to the interests and expertise of  staff in LGS or CRMEP (Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy). The studentships will be granted for UK/EU-level tuition fees for full-time research degrees and an annual living grant of £15,000. Non-EU students are eligible to apply, but if successful are required to make their own financial arrangements to cover the difference in fees. The successful applicant may be asked to undertake up to 80 hours per annum as teaching and/or research assistants, as a part of their Studentship.


Applicants are expected to hold a good honours degree and to have attained a good result (merit or distinction, or equivalent) in a postgraduate qualification (MA or equivalent) in Philosophy or a related discipline relevant to their research.

Application procedure

Please send a CV, a brief research proposal of around 1,000 words and a letter of application outlining your potential contribution to CRMEP/LGS, to the Research Administrator, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences:

Deadline for receipt of applications is noon, 1 May 2012.

Interviews will be held on Thursday 24 May 2012.
