Dennis Lehmkuhl (history and philosophy of physics, history and philosophy of science), formerly at Wuppertal, has accepted (and in fact started) a position at Caltech as Research Assistant Professor in History and Philosophy of Science and Scientific Editor at the Einstein Papers Project.
The directors of the The Philosophy of Time Society (currently based in the U.S.), the Centre for Time (Australia) and the Centre for Philosophy of Time (Italy) have agreed to coordinate the efforts of these respective groups under an alliance (to be known as the International Association for the Philosophy of Time [IAPT]), the primary purpose of which will be the organization of an annual scholarly conference on the Anglophone philosophy of time. The conference location will rotate between Europe, Australasia, and North America. The co-sponsored May 2014 conference in Gargnano, Italy will be retroactively considered the first of these; the upcoming June 2015 conference in Sydney, Australia will be the second; and Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC (USA) will host the third in the summer of 2016. The annual conference will then return to Europe in 2017, and so on.
The University of Hamburg has advertised for a W-3 position in the philosophy of science (full professor) starting this fall. The deadline is very soon (26 March 2015), so hurry! Below is the announcement in German. German is not required at the time of application.
The Metaphysics of Entanglement project, based in the Faculty of Philosophy at the University of Oxford and directed by Dr Anna Marmodoro, offers a series of essay prizes open to students and early career researchers. The 2015 prize will be for papers in the philosophy of physics with a metaphysical orientation.
There will be a special issue of the international peer-reviewed journal Synthese on the metaphysics of entanglement edited through the research group, and it is expected that the winning essay will be published in this special issue.
Elizabeth Miller (metaphysics, philosophy of science, philosophy of physics), currently a lecturer in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Birmingham, has accepted a tenure-track position in the Department of Philosophy at Yale University. This is a significant setback for Birmingham’s otherwise very successful effort to building up a top notch philosophy department, but of course an equally significant recruitment success for Yale!
Alyssa Ney (philosophy of mind, metaphysics, philosophy of physics), Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Rochester, has accepted a senior offer from the Department of Philosophy at UC Davis, where she will start this fall. Apart from adding significantly to existing strengths in the philosophy of mind and philosophy of science at UC Davis, this hire is also another major coup for philosophy of physics in California (though sadly not in *Southern* California).
