Contrats doctoraux en philosophie ancienne : Munich (MUSAPh)
The Munich School of Ancient Philosophy (MUSAPh) invites applications for funded doctoral positions. Dissertation proposals are welcome in all
areas of ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, their medieval reception in Arabic and Latin, and textual criticism. Please pass along this announcement to interested students.
MUSAPh is a joint program of the Classics and Philosophy Departments at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU). It is directed by Professors Peter Adamson, Oliver Primavesi and Christof Rapp. In addition, it boasts a substantial number of additional faculty and researchers. Graduate students and visiting fellows round out the exceptionally large and lively ancient philosophy community, which provides an ideal environment for graduate study.
Doctoral fellowships cover three years, the period of dissertation research and writing, and successful applicants are expected to be ready to start work on the dissertation (Students who are not yet prepared to begin dissertation research might be interested in the Masters Program in Ancient Philosophy at LMU). Complementing their dissertation research, doctoral students at MUSAPh participate in a wide array of advanced seminars, reading groups and workshops. Doctoral students may also avail themselves of the opportunity to teach if desired.
Dissertations may be written in German or in English and most advanced seminars and reading groups are run in English. Doctoral degrees are granted in Classics or Philosophy.
We strongly encourage applications by February 15st 2020 to guarantee full consideration. Applications will continue to be reviewed on a rolling basis as long as places remain.
