AHRC funded Doctoral Studentships in Continental Philosophy, University of Dundee

 

The Philosophy Department at the University of Dundee is delighted to invite applications for PhD studentships in continental philosophy. These places have become possible through the involvement of the College of Arts and Social Sciences in the AHRC (Arts & Humanities Research Council) Doctoral Training Partnership Scotland. We particularly welcome research proposals and applications which relate to the following philosophers or topics: aesthetics, art practices, Deleuze, desire, experimental art, Gadamer, Heidegger, hermeneutics, identity, Lyotard, Nietzsche, political economy, psychoanalysis, Ricoeur, Sartre, technology or Vattimo. We also encourage interdisciplinary and inter-institutional proposals.

 

Because of the extremely competitive nature of the review process, applicants should read carefully the guidance notes provided at the link below (How to Apply). In particular, please study the AHRC application form provided on the SGASH website under “Guidance for applicants,” which will need to be completed should your application be accepted by the University of Dundee.

 

Deadline

Deadline for application to the Dundee PhD programme: Monday, 22 December 2014.

(Please note the actual deadline for the AHRC competition is much later. However, in order to be eligible, you must first make an application to the University of Dundee.)

 

Eligibility

The studentships are open to UK and EU applicants and will cover tuition fees and a yearly tax-free maintenance grant (UK students only). To be considered for an award, candidates must have applied to study at the University of Dundee through the UKPASS application system and be in receipt of a conditional or unconditional offer of a place on the philosophy PhD programme.

Philosophy at Dundee

The Philosophy Programme specialises in continental philosophy and offers a vibrant, friendly community with strong interdisciplinary ties to disciplines in the School of Humanities and the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. Research students can expect to benefit from and play an integral role in the research and teaching community. Special lectures by invited speakers occur fortnightly during the term, and students have an opportunity to present their own research at work-in-progress seminars and the annual School of Humanities conference for postgraduates.

 

Applicants are invited to visit the Philosophy Staff Profiles to review the research areas being pursued within the Programme: http://www.dundee.ac.uk/philosophy/staff/.

 

The city of Dundee is undergoing a resurgence thanks to existing strengths in the arts and culture and the current development of the V&A on the waterfront. The city benefits from its proximity to outstanding areas of natural beauty and easy access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen by rail and bus.

 

The University of Dundee is a founding member of the Scottish Graduate School for the Arts and Humanities (SGSAH). The SGSAH is a unique and ambitious national organisation created to provide world-leading support for doctoral researchers in the Arts and Humanities. A collaboration of Scottish Higher Education Institutions, we will share the best of what we have in order to enhance the quality of provision across Scotland, providing our students with access to research expertise across the nation and to our universities’ world-class resources – including museums, special collections and archives. Working with our partners, ranging from the National Galleries of Scotland to BBC Scotland to Oxfam Scotland, the SGSAH will deliver outstanding and innovative skills development training fit for the challenges of the twenty-first century.
