Summer and Winter Research Programs

The UQ Summer Research Scholarship Program provides UQ students with an opportunity to gain research experience working alongside some of the University’s leading academics and researchers.

Each year the School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry offers research placement opportunities for students through the UQ Summer Research Scholarship Program.

Applications will open for the 2019-20 Summer Research Program on Monday, 5 August 2019 and will close 11.59pm on Sunday, 8 September 2019.

Participation is open to students with some background in our School's disciplines: Classics and Ancient History, Studies in Religion, Philosophy or History.  Below is the list of projects on offer.

Current Project 2020

Project title: Fuzzy Logics for Graded Reasoning in Applied Contexts

Fuzzy logic has been instrumental in many technological developments with significant economic impact ranging from unmanned helicopters and subway systems to household appliances. The project aims to develop fuzzy  logic to enhance its fitness as a tool to investigate real-life relations, such as ’favourability’ in the views of a consumer group with respect to a product, that come in grades or degrees. It expects to produce an innovative study of logical languages for databases containing graded information and finite domains. Expected outcomes include new logical methods in the area of many-valued logics which should provide a platform for the enhancement of artificial intelligence applications which implement fuzzy logic in modelling imprecise language.

This project is open to students with a background in logic, philosophy or mathematics (who have some familiarity with the material from MATH3306 and PHIL3110).
