Here's an opportunity

If I were 20 years younger and undoctored, this would be a cool opportunity:
Darwin Trust Scholarship in HPS

The Darwin Trust invites applications for a postgraduate research
scholarship tenable at any UK university from graduates, of any
nationality, who wish to study for a PhD in the history or
philosophy of science and technology. The scholarship will provide
a maintenance grant of £12,000 per annum for up to three
years and the necessary university fees. Candidates, who should
not normally be more than 30 years of age, should hold, or be
expected to obtain, academic qualifications equivalent to a First
Class honours degree from a British university and must have an
application confirmed or pending for a posgraduate position wihin
an appropriate university department. Applicants from overseas
should hold a certificate of proficiency in the English language
(TOEFL 600 (paper-based) or 250 (computer-based), IELTS 7.0).
Preference will be given to candidates who propose moving to a
university, or at least a department, different from that in which
they will have graduated.

Applications should be lodged by 28 April 2006 with Professor K
Murray, Institute of Cell Biology, University of Edinburgh, Darwin
Building, Mayfield Road, Edinburgh H9 3JR, Scotland, UK, from whom
application forms may be obtained.
