Two PhD studentships available: 'Towards Professional Epistemic Justice: Finance and Medicine'

Prof Miranda Fricker (University of Sheffield/CUNY) is co-leading a collaborative research project with Prof Boudewijn de Bruin (University of Gröningen), entitled Towards Professional Epistemic Justice: Finance and Medicine.

Funded by the Dutch Research Council (NWO), the project will fund two Sheffield PhD students, who will spend a fourth year in Groningen. It also funds a 3-year Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr Elianna Fetterolf (a Sheffield PhD alumna). Elianna will ground the Medical Humanities side of the project in Sheffield during her first year before expanding the network to the Graduate Center in New York.

Two PhD studentships 2017–2021 (3 + 1 years)

The PhD studentships extend from 1 September 2017 to 31 July 2021. The successful candidates will spend three years pursuing research for the Sheffield PhD in Philosophy, and will visit Gröningen during their second year. After completion of the Sheffield PhD at the end of the third year, they will spend their fourth year in Gröningen pursuing research leading to a second PhD in Philosophy or in Economics from the University of Gröningen, as appropriate.

Profs Fricker and de Bruin will supervise the PhD student with further supervisory support given by appropriate colleagues at Sheffield.
