University of Aberdeen in the UK is offering James Beattie Scholarships: Epistemic values, virtues and vices. This innovative scholarship programme provides an opportunity for postgraduate research students to undertake a package of training and career development, including teaching or research assistance, and to join a research network concentrated in a particular field of study.

PhD Project: Varieties of Epistemic Injustice

The notion of epistemic injustice — the injustice done to someone in their capacity as a knower — has attracted increasing attention since it was influentially discussed by Miranda Fricker in ‘Epistemic Injustice: Power and the Ethics of Knowing’.

Possible theses written under this project will aim to reach some of the following goals:

  • Explore the possible applications of testimonial and hermeneutical injustice, as described by Fricker, to novel domains;
  • Motivate more nuanced understandings of either or both of these two notions;
  • Examine the extension of testimonial injustice to other epistemic sources;
  • Investigate the notions of prejudice and marginalization which epistemic injustice fundamentally relies on.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Applicants must be of outstanding academic merit and potential for independent research, as evidenced by the candidate’s academic record, prior qualifications, proposal and references. Selection will be based on this evidence and upon the strength of the proposed engagement with the advertised research project.
  • Applicants must be classified as Overseas students for fees purposes as set by the University of Aberdeen.
  • Applicants must hold, or expect to hold prior to commencement of studies, an undergraduate degree at UK first class or 2:1 honours level, or the international equivalent. It is preferable but not a requirement that you hold a Masters relevant to your chosen area of study. Other factors such as financial status and nationality are not taken into account.
