Three PhD Studentships in Philosophy/HPS at  University of Leeds

The Department of Philosophy at the University of Leeds is pleased to announce three new PhD studentships for 2009-2010. Two studentships are funded through the AHRC’s Block Grant Partnerships Scheme. An additional Departmental studentship is funded at a rate equivalent to that of the AHRC awards. Note that these studentships are in addition to the three dedicated studentships which have already been awarded.

The closing date for receipt of applications for the studentships is 24 April 2009. The awards are conditional on successful application for admission to study for PhD in the Department.
