University of Birmingham

The University of Birmingham Department of Philosophy hosts some Distinguished Research Professors (full listing). The department says the following about them.

These appointments are initially for three years with the expectation of renewal. The new Distinguished Professors will be fully involved in the life of our Philosophy department here at Birmingham for at least four weeks a year. They will present and discuss their research in a number of seminars and supervise doctoral students together with our permanent staff. In addition, we will organise a number of workshops and colloquia focusing on their work. The new Distinguished Research Professors will ensure that the Philosophy department at Birmingham is one of the most exciting places for philosophers.
