Funded PhD Studentships/Fellowships at Lingnan University in Hong Kong

Deadline: 2 December 2019

The department of philosophy at Lingnan University, which is one of the strongest in analytic philosophy in Asia, is interested in supporting applications for Hong Kong PhD Fellowships/Studentships. The department is especially strong in philosophy of science, philosophical logic, metaphysics and aesthetics, and also has several members with expertise in other areas such as personal identity, philosophy of mathematics, ethics, epistemology, and Chinese philosophy. 

The Fellowships provide an annual stipend of HK $309,600 (approximately US$39,500) and a conference and research-related travel allowance of HK$12,900 (approximately US$1,650) per year for each awardee for a period up to three years.

Over the past four years, seven applicants we have supported have secured PhD Fellowships.

Those with first class undergraduate degrees and/or (predicted) distinctions in their MA degrees are especially encouraged to apply.

You can find out more about Lingnan's philosophy department at http://www.ln.edu.hk/philoso/, and the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship scheme at http://cerg1.ugc.edu.hk/hkpfs/index.html.

The department is more likely to accept research proposals in areas where there is existing faculty expertise. Prospective applicants are advised to visit the department website for more information on faculty interests and research.

The official deadline is 2nd December, but prospective applicants are encouraged to contact the department by email earlier.

Please contact Prof. Andrea Sauchelli at andreasauchelli@ln.edu.hk or Prof. Jiji Zhang at jijizhang@ln.edu.hk if you are intending to apply.
