The School of Humanities at the University of Leeds intends to offer up to four studentships in Philosophy and History & Philosophy of Science (HPS) to suitably qualified candidates for its full-time (FT) or part-time (PT) PhD programmes. One studentship is associated with the AHRC Block Grant Partnership and will pay full Home/EU fees (currently £4,200 p.a. FT) and (for those eligible for a full award) the standard maintenance component for AHRC doctoral awards (currently £13,590 p.a. FT). Up to two additional school studentships will be offered paying full Home/EU fees and substantial maintenance awards. 

Applications for studentships are welcome from all areas of philosophy/HPS research in which the school can provide PhD supervision (see http://www.leeds.ac.uk/arts/info/20048/philosophy/1094/postgraduate/6). For further information about PhD research at Leeds please contact:

* for Philosophy, Dr Jason Turner (j.t.turner@leeds.ac.uk)
* for HPS, Prof. Greg Radick (g.m.radick@leeds.ac.uk)

Applicants for the PhD programme in Philosophy and HPS may also be eligible to apply for a number of scholarships offered by the university (details below).

In addition, we are offering an ESRC Doctoral Award in Science and Technology Studies as part of the new Science and Technology Studies Network between the Universities of Sheffield, Leeds and York. The studentship is for a project on 'The meaning and practice of translational research in biomedicine', to be supervised by Professor Greg Radick and by Professor Susan Molyneux-Hodgson of the Department of Sociological Studies, University of Sheffield. 

The school will also be offering an AHRC Research Preparation Masters award as well as a number of fees-only awards and small bursaries in support of study on its taught and research MA programmes. For further details see http://www.leeds.ac.uk/arts/info/20048/philosophy/1094/postgraduate/7.
