Applications sought for Society-sponsored PhD studentship in ethics

Applications are now being sought for the first of two PhD studentships in professional ethics sponsored by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (PJ, 2 February, p152).

The purpose of the studentship is to explore and develop values and ethics in the pharmacy profession. Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates with an interest in health care ethics or professional ethics.

The studentship is based at the Centre for Public Policy Research (CPPR) in the Department of Education and Professional Studies at King's College London. It is hosted jointly by the CPPR and the Centre for Practice and Policy at the School of Pharmacy, University of London.

Candidates must have a knowledge of health care ethics or professional ethics and a masters degree in a relevant humanities, social science or professional discipline. Candidates must also have an interest in mapping values and ethics in pharmacy through qualitative research. Prior knowledge of pharmacy and medicines may be an advantage but is not essential.

In addition to university fees the studentship carries a stipend of £11,000 rising to £13,000 per annum.

The Society says: "This is a rare opportunity for an able scholar who wishes to further their study of ethics in an interdisciplinary academic context, and to contribute to the professional agenda of a national body."

Details of the second studentship are to be announced later. The studentships form a central theme in the Society's five-year research strategy, approved by the Council in June 2001.

Further details of the first studentship are available from Caroline Gill, Centre for Public Policy Research, Department of Education and Professional Studies, King's College London, Franklin-Wilkins Building, Waterloo Road, London SE1 9NN (tel 020 7848 3139; e-mail The closing date for applications is 31 May.
