Research Master's programme in Philosophy, Groningen, THE NETHERLANDS
At the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Groningen, we offer an advanced Research Master?s program, entirely in English. Applications for the 2013-2014 academic year are now welcome. http://www.rug.nl/research/gradschool-philosophy/research-master/ The program covers all areas of strength of the Faculty, which include: epistemology, logic, philosophy of science, argumentation, philosophy of mind; ethics; political, social and cultural philosophy; history of philosophy, especially Medieval, Renaissance and Early Modern. For a list of current faculty, see here: http://www.rug.nl/filosofie/organization/staff-members The program has two very attractive features from a practical point of view: Partial Funding as a TA. All students are given the opportunity to act as Teaching Assistants (TA) at the undergraduate courses offered by the Faculty, and receive a remuneration of around EUR 400 per month for their work as TA?s. This means that all students in the program are offered partial funding. Fully Funded PhD positions. Every year, the three best students graduating from the program are offered fully funded PhD positions at the Faculty for a period of three years. Hence, the program offers ideal conditions for those wishing to pursue a research career in philosophy. The Faculty of Philosophy in Groningen is consistently rated as the best in the Netherlands both for research and for teaching, and is widely regarded as one of the main centers for analytic philosophy in Continental Europe. It offers a lively, international environment in one of the most pleasant university towns of Northern Europe.
