Scholarship Opportunities at Macquarie – Animal Ethics  

As part of Dr Jane Johnson’s ARC Future Fellowship Project “Rethinking animals in research: Developing a novel ethical framework” there are 2 x 4 year Scholarships in the Department of Philosophy at Macquarie University. These cover the 2nd year of Macquarie’s MRes and a 3 year PhD.

The scholarships will support successful candidates to devise and develop their own project in collaboration with Dr Johnson on a topic related to:

  • animal ethics in research, or
  • relational approaches to animal ethics.

The project could be wholly conceptual or could incorporate a qualitative empirical study.

The Philosophy Department at Macquarie University is vibrant and collegial. It is ranked #24 in the world and #2 in Australia and New Zealand according to the 2022 QS World University subject rankings. We offer a program that reflects a dedication to traditional philosophical pluralism, with long-standing strengths in applied ethics, social philosophy, and philosophy of mind.
