MOVING TO THE FRONT (Original post 22 March 2012)
As more and more junior hiring decisions are finalized for this (North American) hiring season, I would like to start a post open for comments reporting on junior hiring (i.e., tenure-track and postdoc). While some are still in the making–and I will only report on them if they are official or have been announced elsewhere–, I know of three junior hires in the philosophy of physics (broadly conceived):
- Nora Berenstain (Texas) hired by University of Tennessee (AOS: philosophy of science, metaphysics, philosophy of physics)
- James Weatherall (UC Irvine) hired by University of California, Irvine (AOS: philosophy of physics, philosophy of science)
- Alastair Wilson (Oxford) hired by University of Birmingham (AOS: metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of physics)
Nota bene: I follow Brian Leiter’s conventions, i.e., ‘hired by’ means a tenure-track or permanent position.
Please add comments if you have more information on other jobs, but only if you are the candidate, the placement director of the candidate’s department, or the chair of the hiring department.
