    As I see from my searches that it's not so good of an idea to pursue a PHD in foundations. (-:

    Contact academic staff who are involved with foundations and ask them if funding might be available. Lee Smolin's book "Trouble..." suggests it is easier to get into "off mainstream" physics in the UK than it is in the USA, and gives some useful tips worth seeking out. Maybe take Diogenes' approach to Antisthenes as a model? :-)

    This year isn't such a good year to be applying for postdoc positions, I'm afraid. Anyway, I know that Imperial have a few people working on foundations.. doubt that helps, though!

    It's ok cristo, I'm quite far from this right now, bt it's good to know before even starting, the sites which gather such information.

    I'm still hoping there's an euivalent site for scandinavia.

    There is no general post-doc-site for Scandinavia, but if You do your research well You will most likely find one site for each University.

    For example, here are three of the largest unis of Sweden:
    http://ki.se/, http://www.kth.se/, http://www.ltu.se/

    For example, here is one of the job-sites in Sweden:

    Good luck!
