Goodman Studentship 2015 - PhD in Toleration in Law and Politics

Posted on 8 December 2014

New PhD Opportunity in Toleration in Law and Politics

Applications are invited from students interested in pursuing doctoral research on Toleration in Law and Politics. The research must have a legal element and will be generously funded by the Goodman studentship. Find out more here

The PhD will be jointly supervised by the Centre’s Director, Professor Matt Matravers in York Law School, and by a suitable member of the political theory group within the Department of Politics. To be eligible for the award, the proposal must be appropriate for joint supervision and in particular include a legal element. Beyond that, there is no restriction on scope and we welcome substantive proposals on toleration broadly conceived.

The award is of the ‘Goodman Studentship’ in memory of Ted Goodman who was for many years a Trustee of the C & JB Morrell Trust.

The studentship holder is expected to engage in independent research for his/her PhD.

The studentship holder will have opportunities to gain teaching experience during the course of the PhD. However, both would be by agreement and would be paid at standard University of York rates.
