Job description

Uppsala University hereby announces a position as a doctoral student in philosophy at the Department of Philosophy. Priority will be given to applicants whose primary research will be in ethics broadly construed, including normative ethics, value theory, metaethics, and political philosophy.

The successful applicant will be employed by the department as a PhD candidate (“doktorandanställning”) for 4 years full-time, and as an employee they will be eligible for Swedish social benefits, such as paid parental leave. The starting salary is currently 27,300 SEK (ca. €2,500)/month and at present increases to 32,900 SEK (ca. €3,100)/month after the candidate has completed 80% of their research. Doctoral students are expected to engage in their studies full-time and to participate in the activities of the department. The position may include teaching and other assignments. Certain kinds of work for the department, including teaching, qualify the student for an extension of their contract. The position is available from 1 September 2020.

Please note that a Master Degree or equivalent is required for this position.

Your application should include (a) an application letter; (b) a brief CV, including the names and contact details of academic referees; (c) a statement outlining your proposed research (4-5 pages); (d) one or more writing samples (for example bachelor’s or master’s thesis or other substantial philosophical work); (e) copies of diplomas or equivalent documentation of eligibility and academic qualifications.
