Centre for Ethics
C4E Doctoral Fellowship
We invite applications for the C4E Doctoral Fellows Program at the Centre for Ethics, University of Toronto, during the 2018-19 academic year.
We expect to award one or two fellowships to outstanding doctoral students at the University of Toronto. We welcome candidates with research interests from diverse backgrounds including, but not limited to, philosophy, law, political science, the social sciences, the humanities, computer science, engineering, and technology studies, that align with the C4E’s mission as an interdisciplinary centre aimed at advancing research and teaching in the field of ethics, broadly defined, by bringing together the theoretical and practical knowledge of diverse scholars, students, public servants and social leaders in order to increase understanding of the ethical dimensions of individual, social, and political life. To get a sense of the wide disciplinary range and diversity of C4E events, activities, and projects, please consult the C4E website (https://ethics.utoronto.ca).
The C4E Doctoral Fellows Program is open to doctoral students enrolled in the Faculty of Arts and Science, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Management, the Faculty of Medicine, or the Faculty of Education (OISE/UT) at the University of Toronto. Applicants should have completed their course requirements and have received formal approval of their doctoral dissertation proposals.
C4E Doctoral Fellows receive a stipend of $2,000 for the academic year. Fellows will have office space at the Centre for Ethics, with access to a printer and photocopying facilities. Doctoral Fellows are expected, throughout the term of their fellowship, to be in residence at the Centre for Ethics and to actively participate in the Centre’s intellectual life by attending and working closely with the director in planning Centre events. Fellowships are non-renewable.
