The programme prepares students for a research career in philosophy. Students are encouraged to apply for pre-doctoral fellowships — e.g. with the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) or the research councils of the participating universities — with their own research proposal. Students may also apply for doctoral positions with a predetermined research project that falls within their area of expertise. Such positions are regularly advertised in academic newsletters and email-lists.
Between 2018 and 2020, 11 students graduated in our research master programme. 10 of them now are employed by a university or funding agency as predoctoral researcher.
In September 2021, 5 students graduated in our programme. 2 of them are now employed as predoctoral researchers. The other students continue to apply for such positions. We hope that they will succeed in 2022.
