June 7th – July 23rd, 2015
The Centre for Moral and Political Philosophy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem invites applications for a summer PhD workshop on the topic of well-being. We will invite up to 6 PhD students to spend 6 weeks (7 June to 23 July 2015) as fellows at the Centre to work on their own research and exchange ideas with each other and the members of the Centre. Fellows will attend Wayne Sumner’s condensed graduate class on Well-being: Recent Themes.
Fellows will be expected to attend our first annual conference (also on the topic of Well-being) 15–17 July 2015. Confirmed speakers include Richard Arneson (UCSD), Daniel Attas (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Neera Badhwar (Oklahoma), Ben Bradley (Syracuse), Susan Dimock (York), Wayne Sumner (Toronto), Hasko von Kriegstein (Hebrew University of Jerusalem).
The Centre will pay for the travel cost to Jerusalem, provide accommodation, and pay a per diem of roughly $3000 for the whole six week period.
Successful applicants will be outstanding PhD students whose work is related to the topic of Well-being and who are in the dissertation stage of their program.
