Analysis Studentship and Mind Studentship 2019-20

Analysis Studentship and Mind Studentship 2019-20

Deadline for applications: Friday 12 April 2019.

The Analysis Trust and the Mind Association each propose to award a studentship equal to the full-time maintenance grant for an Arts and Humanities Research Council postgraduate studentship for the year 2019-2020. These studentships are designed to support a promising philosopher who does not have other means of support (e.g. a temporary or permanent lectureship or a research fellowship) and to enable them to conduct full-time research. The funds are solely for maintenance and support of research, and not institutional overheads.

Candidates for the studentship should be pursuing research at a British university, at the beginning of their academic career, and, at the time of taking up the award, should have completed at least three and no more than five years of full-time research, or the part-time equivalent. Candidates may make a case for circumstances that exempt them from these eligibility criteria. The research should be on a subject which falls under the traditional concerns of the journals Analysis and Mind, for example (but not exclusively) metaphysics, philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, epistemology, ethics, political philosophy, aesthetics, logic, philosophy of science, and the history of philosophy. It is envisaged that the successful candidate will have recently completed a Ph.D. or be very close to completion, and have a CV which would make him or her a strong contender for a Junior Research Fellowship or similar appointment.

An application for the studentship should be made by email to Dr Ben Colburn, Secretary of the Analysis Committee ( It should consist of a CV, a statement of proposed research of not more than 500 words, and an official letter offering facilities in the department in which the candidate proposes to hold the studentship (this should at least consist in access to computers, the library and research seminars in the department). Applicants should also ensure that two references are sent to Dr Colburn (at the address above) by the deadline for applications: Friday 12 April 2019.

Short-listed candidates will be invited to submit some written work of up to 8,000 words in the middle of May. The Secretary of the joint committee will communicate the results of the competition to successful applicants in early July.
