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. No special application is required, but the application should address qualification to pursue philosophy of physics, and suitable candidates will be interviewed by Professor Huggett before a decision is reached.”

Please pass this on to any undergraduates considering where to apply for graduate school for philosophy of physics.

Information on applying to UIC is found here: https://phil.uic.edu/graduate/prospective-grads/
