The Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science (CPNSS) at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is offering up two CPNSS Research Awards to researchers preparing a major grant proposal. CPNSS Research Awards are intended to be seed grants. The successful applicant will get up to £8000 to support the writing and submission of a grant application. The project should be broadly in the area of philosophy, but in line with the Centre's interdisciplinary mission we welcome applications involving other disciplines. The award can be used to buy out the applicant's time, cover replacement teaching, and/or pay a research assistant. While writing, the successful applicant is welcome to stay at the Centre as a visitor.
Applications are accepted from scholars at all ranks and degrees of seniority. For young researchers mentoring by a senior member of the LSE philosophy community can be made available.
Applications should include:
1. Applicant's CV
2. Project outline containing:
A short project description (ca. 500 words)
A list of grants for which an application may be made and the deadlines at which applications will be submitted.
A budget detailing how the money will be used
Please send applications to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 September 2013.
