Scholarship and Research Assistantship
UCL offers the Keeling Graduate Scholarship and Research Assistantship in Ancient Philosophy, for a tenure of up to three years.
Students must be admitted to a graduate research degree in the Department of Philosophy to be eligible, and submit a research proposal in ancient Greek philosophy. The Scholarship and Research Assistantship will be for £15,000 per annum for maintenance, plus £3,460 for student fees.
The Research Assistantship will involve light duties (average 6-8 hours per week), including providing assistance in organising and running the annual Keeling Lecture in Greek philosophy and associated academic events, providing assistance in organising and running the biennial Keeling Colloquium in Greek philosophy and associated academic events, and undertaking sub-editorial work towards the publication of the proceedings of the Keeling Colloquia.
UCL is widely recognised as home to a leading Philosophy Department. In the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008), the UCL Philosophy Department was ranked first in the UK. Applicants will also be considered for UCL Philosophy's 5 AHRC block grants.
Enquiries in the first instance should be directed to Dr. Fiona Leigh: email@example.com.
