Welcome to the website for the Midlands Philosophy Research Training Network.

This is an initiative funded by the Subject Centre for Philosophical and Religious Studies of the Higher Education Academy involving the philosophy departments at Birmingham, Birmingham City, Keele, Staffordshire and Warwick Universities.

We are running five workshops across the Midlands per year in 2008-9 and 2009-10, available to postgraduate research students in the participating departments, focusing on the kind of training that you cannot normally get from supervision and the process of writing your thesis on their own. The sessions include teaching methods, curricula for courses you might be expected to teach, writing a CV, presenting your research, organising conferences, preparing for academic job interviews, and so on.
