Ancient Philosophy PhD funding opportunity
- Dear all,
Please find below information about a funding opportunity for study in Ancient Philosophy at UCL.
UCL POSTGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP IN ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY
Applications are invited for the Keeling Postgraduate Scholarship and
Research Assistantship in Ancient Philosophy, at UCL, for a tenure of up
to three years.
Students must be admitted to a postgraduate research degree in the
Department of Philosophy to be eligible, and submit a research proposal in
ancient Greek philosophy. The research degree will most likely be a PhD or
MPhil/PhD, but applicants admitted to the MPhil Stud. will also be
considered for the Keeling Scholarship. The Scholarship and Research
Assistantship will be for £15,000 per annum for maintenance, plus £3,460
for student fees. The Research Assistantship will involve light duties,
generally sub-editorial work on the publication of the biannual
proceedings of the Keeling Colloquia.
UCL is widely recognised as home to a leading Philosophy Department. In
the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008), the UCL
Philosophy Department was ranked first in the UK. Applicants will also be
considered for UCL Philosophy's 5 AHRC block grants. All applications to
UCL Philosophy are due by 1st February, 2011. However, enquiries in the
first instance should be directed to Dr. Fiona Leigh:

International students (those from outside the UK and the EU) are welcome
to apply, but should note that the Scholarship only pays £3460 for fees:
it will not therefore cover international student fees. Information for
international students, including language requirements, can be found at:
