Deadline for applications: May 4, 2015.
The department of philosophy, linguistics and theory of science at the University of Gothenburg is calling for applications for a fully funded PhD candidate position in practical philosophy, attached to a research project on ethical obstacles to person centred care.
As the position is funded in part by a research grant from FORTE the successful candidate should write her or his doctoral thesis within one of project’s areas. The dissertation project must saliently connect to the FORTE project theme of ethical barriers to person centered care in pediatrics, psychiatry and primary care. The FORTE project will include empirical surveys and other data collection, combined with ethical and philosophical analysis, and the thesis project needs to adapt to this multi-disciplinarity and may itself include parts of the planned data-collection activities. In Gothenburg, there is particular interest in the area of pediatrics and psychiatry, with ongoing collaborations with pediatric endocrinology (diabetes and/or obesity) unit, as well as a forensic psychiatric research and treatment centre. The position also opens opportunity for the successful applicant to develop collaborative work with the Stockholm end of the project, focusing on geriatric psychiatry and primary care, as well as other specific care areas of relevance.
