All GEP students also enjoy regular access to career coaches and ongoing guidance. 

Our Remote Program (RP) is new for 2020 and offers an experience yielding the benefits of a structured and well-managed remote internship placement, without the logistical and financial overhead associated with relocating elsewhere. Like the GEP, students may undertake a 6 to 12 week program (with corresponding-length internship placement in their chosen career field), in one of 20 cities, and at at any time of year (programs commence on a rolling monthly basis). All RP students undertake an personalized, online version of our prized Career Navigator and Business leaders courses.

About City Internships

City Internships creates globally engaged, career-ready graduates. 

Since 2011, our immersive, structured "bridge" programs have equipped graduates with the in-demand skills, experience and links to employers necessary to launch meaningful careers in today's competitive and evolving employment landscape.

We are a "career accelerator" with a strong track-record in protecting and amplifying the value of students' post-secondary education. Upon college graduation, CI alumni secure graduate-level employment 3 times more quickly and starting salaries 30 percent higher than their peers.

Our overarching mission is to serve as a bridge between traditional education providers and leading companies. 

In the US, fewer than 60 percent of college students graduate. And fewer than 55% of recent graduates (those aged between 22 and 27) secure graduate-level employment. The effects of early career outcomes are significant and long-lasting, more than three-quarters of lifetime earnings growth accrues within the first decade of work. As well as individuals, the effects of poor early career outcomes have the potential destabilize institutions. We believe the talent/skill and enrollee shortages reported, increasingly and respectively, by employers and educators are symptomatic of the same cause; employers and educators occupying parallel, seldom overlapping universes and the depressed college outcomes that result.

By rigorously enhancing the career preparedness of students via outcomes-focused experiential education, we too serve the dual and mutual interests of employers and traditional educators; enabling companies to build suitably skilled and high-performing teams and colleges to demonstrate quality, relevance and value through favorable education-to-employment outcomes.

PhD Scholarship in Philosophy, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia

Location: Clayton campus

Employment Type: Full-time

Duration: 3 years and 3 months

Remuneration:  Current value: AU$29,000 per annum 2020 full-time, tax-free stipend (indexed plus allowances).

If an international student is selected tuition fees will be covered, including Overseas Single Health Cover. For scholarship procedures and conditions, please visit this link.

The Opportunity

As part of the Australian Research Council Future Fellowship, 'Substructural logics for limited resources' (FT190100147), up to two PhD scholarships are available at Monash University. Primary supervision will be provided by the Future Fellow, Dr David Ripley.

Deductive reasoning takes time, memory, effort, attention, sometimes scratch paper, etc: in short, resources. This means it's entirely possible to have enough resources to reason either from A to B or from B to C, but still not to have enough resources to be able to put those steps together and reason all the way from A to C. In short, deductive reasoning under conditions of limited resources is nontransitive. The same goes for computation: computing things takes resources, and so it's possible to be in a position to compute either a B from an A or a C from a B without yet being in a position to compute a C from an A.

This project aims to study and develop substructural, and in particular nontransitive, logics for modelling both deductive reasoning and computation under these conditions of limited resources. For deductive reasoning, the hope is that this will shed new light on the ways in which deduction can be informative. For computation, the hope is that this will facilitate the design of programming languages that will help manage these limited resources. The backbone of the project is in pure logic: in developing the theory of nontransitive logics for resource management, and in relating this to existing work on noncontractive logics (such as linear logic) for resource management. The precise details of the PhD research are flexible and responsive to the successful applicants' expertise and interests, and will be confirmed through discussions between successful applicants and the supervisors. 

Monash University is the largest university in Australia and regularly ranks in the top 100 universities worldwide. Monash has six globally networked campuses and international alliances in Europe and Asia. The applicant(s) will be based at the Clayton campus in Melbourne. Melbourne is frequently cited among the "Most Liveable Cities in the World".

Successful candidates will also be a part of the Melbourne Logic Group, an informal interuniversity group involving experts in substructural logics such as Lloyd Humberstone (philosophy, Monash), Tomasz Kowalski (mathematics, La Trobe), and Greg Restall (philosophy, University of Melbourne). The group meets weekly during semesters and regularly hosts speakers from a wide range of areas in logic.

In addition to the scholarship, research candidates in the Faculty of Arts also have access to funding for research trips spanning conferences and major events relevant to their own independent research, as well as other research-related expenses.

Candidate Requirements

The successful applicant will have an excellent academic track record in logic, whether in philosophy or in some other discipline relevant to the project, such as computer science, linguistics, or mathematics. Experience in substructural logics, in particular, is desirable but not essential.

Applicants will be considered if they fulfil the criteria for PhD admission at Monash University. Details of eligibility requirements to undertake a PhD in the Faculty of Arts are available here.

Candidates will be required to meet Monash admission requirements which include English-language proficiency skills. Scholarship holders must be enrolled full-time and on campus.

Successful applicants will be expected to enrol before July 2020. However, there may be some flexibility as to the date of commencement.

Please note: applicants who already hold a PhD will not be considered.

Enquiries

Enquiries concerning the research project and other academic matters should be directed in the first instance to Dr David Ripley by email: david.ripley@monash.edu

Submit an Expression of Interest

EOIs shall comprise:

  • A cover letter that includes a brief statement of the applicant's suitability

  • A research proposal not exceeding 750 words in length

  • A curriculum vitae, including a list of any published works, conference presentations and relevant work experience
