Lakatos Research Fellowships at LSE

Kutatói ösztöndíj a London School of Economics-on.

An extensive archive of Imre Lakatos's papers and letters - some in Hungarian, most in English - is held in the Library at the London School of Economics. Due to the generosity of an anonymous donor, Research Fellowships to a total amount of US$ 12,000 will be available in the calendar year 2006 for scholars wishing to pursue some research project on Lakatos and/or his contemporaries requiring consultation of the archive. The Fellowships will be held at LSE's Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science, which will also provide facilities for the Fellows. The awards will aim to cover the recipients' travel and a stipend of 250£/week for junior scholars (PhD students) and 500£/week for senior scholars for other expenses during his or her stay in London. The length of the stay should be between a week and two months.

To apply please send a covering letter (specifying when you plan to visit and an estimate of how long you would need to spend in London), a CV and a 500 words project description to Dr Stephan Hartmann, Director, Centre for Philosophy of Natural and Social Science, London School of Economics, London WC2A 2AE, UK. Applications by email to philcent@lse.ac.uk (subject: Lakatos Research Fellowship) are also welcome. The deadline for applications is March 1, 2006. Junior scholars and young faculty are especially encouraged to apply.
