Subject: [neoplatonism] CfA: DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN ANCIENT PHILOSOPHY BERLIN
Graduate School of Ancient Philosophy (GSAP)
Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin
Apply by 15 January 2013 for the
- Three-Year Doctoral Program in Ancient Philosophy,
- Or for pre-doctoral studies of one year.
The Graduate School of Ancient Philosophy (http://www.gsap.hu-berlin.de)
at the Humboldt-Universitaet zu Berlin (http://www.hu-berlin.de) is
pleased to offer up to four fellowships for doctoral studies in Ancient
Philosophy and Science. *Two of these fellowships are reserved for*
*non-German applicants* because they are funded by the German Academic
Exchange Service (DAAD).
The fellowships cover the living costs at Berlin and are for full-time
study only. There are no tuition fees, but there are low administrative
fees amounting to ca. 250-300 Euros per semester (and cover free public
transportation in Berlin).
Students may also apply for a funded pre-doctorial year of studies at
the Graduate School. Typical candidates for this option are students who
hold a BA in philosophy or classics (but not an MA) and want to take a
PhD without first taking an MA (which is the typical path within the
German system of higher education).
*The Graduate School of Ancient Philosophy*
The GSAP provides a structured doctoral program in ancient philosophy
and science (in English and German). The three-year program leads to the
doctoral degree in Philosophy or Classics. It includes colloquia,
dissertation seminars, reading groups, international workshops, and
intensive short courses. The program culminates in the writing of a
doctoral dissertation (in English or German).
The School’s core faculty:
- Prof. Jonathan Beere
- Prof. Stephen Menn
- Prof. Philip van der Eijk
- Dr. Jacob Rosen
- Tim Wagner
The School is embedded in a lively community of scholars and
institutions (like the Excellence Cluster Topoi) all devoted to ancient
The international Ancient Philosophy & Science Network (APSN)
Students of the program are automatically part of the international
Ancient Philosophy & Science Network (APSN) initiated by the Graduate
School. The APSN involves collaboration with five international partner
institutions in the field of ancient philosophy and science:
- University of Chicago (Philosophy and Classics)
- University of Leuven (Philosophy, De Wulf-Mansioncentre)
- Princeton University (Philosophy and Classics)
- University of Toronto (Philosophy and Classics)
- University of Cambridge (History and Philosophy of Science)
The closing date for applications for the fellowships is 15 January. The
doctoral fellowships advertised here have no thematic restrictions.
Interviews will be held at Berlin (presumably during the second last
week of March 2013). Candidates from overseas will not need to travel to
Berlin for an interview.
