The idea CETL at the University of Leeds

The idea CETL’s vision is to be a world-class centre for excellence in learning, teaching and research in inter-disciplinary applied ethics. Since its inception it has developed significant research and professional ethics consultancy activity and has a lively programme of research seminars, research workshops and conferences to which its pgr students are expected to contribute.

Studentship Information

The idea CETL intends to offer a studentship in applied ethics, broadly conceived, to high quality candidates for its full-time or part-time phd programme. The studentship is tenable for 3yr (f-t) or 5yr (p-t) from september/october 2013 and has both tuition and maintenance components: the tuition component will be equivalent to the full eu phd fee1 and the maintenance component will be equivalent to that of the ahrc doctoral award.

The centre has particular research strengths (see full advert at but candidates with interests in any area of applied ethics, broadly construed, are warmly encouraged to apply. The idea cetl currently teaches in a wide range of areas. We would expect the pgr’s research to contribute to our expertise in at least one of these areas.
