Trusting Banks is a collaborative research project in applied ethics and epistemology between the Universities of Cambridge and Groningen, sponsored by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The project is led by Prof Alex Oliver (Cambridge) and Prof Boudewijn de Bruin (Groningen). Two postdoctoral researchers (Dr Thomas Simpson and Dr Anthony Booth) have been appointed, and there are vacancies for two PhD students.Â
Each PhD studentship lasts for four years, from 1 October 2013 to 30 September 2017. The successful candidates will spend three years pursuing research for the Cambridge PhD in Philosophy, and they will be expected to work away in Groningen in their second year. After completion of the Cambridge PhD at the end of the third year, they will spend their fourth year in Groningen pursuing research leading to a second PhD in Philosophy or Economics from the University of Groningen.Â
The studentships will be awarded on a competitive basis, and are open to students of any nationality.Â
