TWO POSITIONS FOR PhD STUDENTS OPENED

At Tilburg Catholic School for Theology two positions for PhD-students are opened. These positions are paid for, during a period of three to four years. The research undertaken should issue forth in a dissertation to be defended at Tilburg University. In case you consider to formulate a research proposal which is relevant to the thought of Thomas Aquinas, do not hesitate to contact Prof. dr. Henk Schoot (theology) or Prof. dr. Rudi te Velde (philosophy). Mail addresses can be found under 'members'. Further details are here.
