Job description

The Department of Philosophy at Lingnan University, which is one of the strongest in analytic philosophy in Asia, is interested in supporting applications for the prestigious Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS). Each Fellowship awardee will be provided with a monthly stipend of HK$27,600 (subject to annual review) and a conference/research-related travel allowance of up to HK$13,800 per year (subject to annual review), for a maximum period of 3 years. (US $1 = HK$7.8) The full tuition fee for the first year of study of a PhD Fellowship awardee will be waived.

Those with first class undergraduate degrees and/or (predicted) distinctions in their MA/MPhil degrees are especially encouraged to apply. Over the past five years, a good number of applicants we have supported have secured these fellowships.

For more information about Lingnan's Department of Philosophy, please visit: https://www.ln.edu.hk/philoso/

Applicants interested in pursuing postgraduate studies (PhD and MPhil) may also apply to the University directly from 1 November 2023 to 19 January 2024. These applications will not go through the government-funding agency (UGC) but will be evaluated exclusively by the Department. Postgraduate Studentships are awarded to full-time MPhil/PhD students to support their daily subsistence, tuition fee and other expenses they may incur during the course of their studies. The current monthly stipend is HK$18,270 for an MPhil student; HK$18,530 for a PhD student before confirmation of candidature; and HK$18,890 for a PhD student after confirmation of candidature. (US$1 = HK$7.8)

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