PhD fellowships at UIC

Our new Templeton grant will make possible a modest additional fellowship for PhD students admitted to UIC as Teaching Assistants to pursue philosophy of physics.

“A two-year top-up fellowship of $2,500/year is available for a suitable student admitted with a TAship. The student would have demonstrated interest and ability in philosophy of physics, and working with the Beyond Spacetime group under the direction of Professor Nick Huggett.
